View Full Version : error 1603 fatal error during installation far cry

Trying to install Far Cry and I got this message. I did some Googling - but didn't really find a decent solution.

What causes this and is there a feasible workaround?

Running Vista 64

Just tried again and let it install to the default directory and left "Install Directx 9.0b" unchecked. Seems to be going fine so far.....

I think you need to have the Install DirectX 9.0b box checked, as I did that and installed FC in a different directory with no problems. This was also on Vista x64.
