    I got the game to install perfectly fine, but when I tried to run it the process ran in the background but the game never loaded. Tried compatibility mode but couldn't get it to work either, so I uninstalled it hoping to reinstall in compatibility mode and see if that fixed the problem. After the uninstall I was prompted to restart, which I did, and after that I tried to install in compatibility mode for XP SP3, but got an error code:
    "An error (-5006: 0x8000ffff) has occurred while running the setup.

    Please make sure you have finished any previous setup and closed other applications."

    Then it tells me that if the error persists I have to contact vivendi universal support at their site, which is obviously no longer around.

    Tried it again for in windows 7 compatibility mode and with comp. mode turned off. Same error.

    I searched for registry entries and they were all gone, I check in CCleaner and programs in the control panel to see if it still showed up as being installed and it was gone. The game's folder is also completely gone. Not sure what else to try. Any help would be much appreciated.
