    Any help would be much apprecitated

    When that progress bar finishes, does it remove the files? Check the Empire Earth directory, and if there aren't any files there, then it worked fine.

    To reinstall it, you probably have to delete the registry keys associated with the game. Click Start->Run, type in 'regedit' (without quotes), and hit OK. Do a search (Ctrl+F) for 'Empire Earth', and delete anything that comes up. Oh, but before you do, export your registry just in case you make a change that Windows doesn't like. Click File->Export within regedit, and select the 'All' option at the bottom, and save it to wherever you like.

    After that, you might as well delete the entire Empire Earth directory (C:\Program Files\Empire Earth, or whatever you installed it to).
