    I have been trying to install Rise&Fall - Civilizations at War onto my PC and as soon as I click Install and the install bar registers one block of progress, it errors out with the following error

    -5003: 0x8004ace4 occurred during setup. Please make sure you have finished any previous setup and closed other applications. Details follow:

    Error Code: -5003 : 0x8004ace4
    Error Information:
    >SetupDLL\SetupDLL.cpp (2989)
    PAPP:Rise and Fall
    PVENDOR:Midway Games (http://www.midway.com/rxpage/Game_Rise&Fall:CivilizationsatWar.html)
    @Windows XP Service Pack 2 (2600) IE 6.0.2900.2180

    Through my own google searches, I have tried a few solutions including updating the graphics drivers(which initially worked, but when i unistalled it fresh so my dad could do it(it was a present), the problem re-occurred)

    Changing the InstallShield directory to installShieldOld
    Removing old registry entries for the game and the old nvidia graphics card entries(prior to reinstalling the new drivers)

    I am now stuck, and would appreciate the communities help
