    It's because you have windows running in a non-english language, or at least have non english support active. Disable the application locale pack, restart and it should install fine.

    thank you. That was exactly it although i couldn't see how to disable through application locale so i went control panel/regional options/addotherlanguages/advanced and removed the foreign packs in there, reboot.

    And that fixed it. Also fixed 2 other games that didn't display that specific error but would not start.
    I have never seen that error before but surely won't forget it now.

    Thanks again.
