Hi everyone. Following an accident with the settings, I uninstalled the demo and have tried to reinstall it. However, I get an error message saying files are corrupt. The problem begins when it gets to the bigfile. I downloaded it from the Underworld microsite as before. What do I do?

I hear there are a number of erroneous installers floating around, and that you have to get it from the official sources to be sure, that being Eidos' site.

But as you got it from there, maybe something went wrong in the process? :/ Maybe you could try downloading it again, and make sure you're not using any download accelerators, don't pause the download in between or do weird things like pulling out your Internet cable and stuff... :p

Thanks for your advice, but I'd never do anything like pulling out my internet cable while downloading something. Also, I've tried getting it from Eidos, still no use. What do I do? I really want to play the demo again.

Have you unpacked the demo installation files before running Setup.exe?

Yes, in fact it was while unpacking the files that the error occurred.

What software did you unpack it with, and is this software up-to-date? :/
