Read the thread hahaha

I had the same error. Did you pre-load it? Either way, try either what nekro recommended (editing install script) or delete the cache and re-download it (what I had to do).

It tries to run a 16-bit version of DXSetup.exe and then Win 7 x64 ****s itself and the program doesn't even start. Tried updating DX manually but doesn't help. Need an x86 or x64 version of DXSetup to replace the one they have. They don't actually include the DX package, they include an installer and the .cab files for the updates.

Who runs 16-bit software anymore? lol

Genius...

after "decryption" there should be a file

installscript.vdf

in the file towards bottom should be something along these lines.



when removing it, make sure you keep the proper closing tags }
