i dont think that error has been reported before and is not something i have seen, does the installer even start? or is it during the extraction process?


seems the error has to do with VclStylesInno.dll (the skinning of the installers buttons and menu borders)
no places i visited seemed to have a resolution for this issue probably because theres so few people effected by it.

for us a possible way would be to change the dll to an earlier version in future installers but that would be down to the fella who codes the installer and if he deems it worth the effort.

i also noticed reports of the newer codex installer suffering from the same issue, unless they have corrected it already.

Thanks for the reply
I was putting it down to my rig but i cant install any of the games at all ,every one gets problems with installs with games but not every game.
pity .
the error just crops up as soon as the installations start ive tried , re-installing vis-basic and various attempts at command prompt
and malware scans but nothing works . I have had no problems with codex yet
