After buying empire total war today retail, when trying to install the game I'm having problems.
I enter the disc into the drive it starts doing it thing, I get the option to select the language I would like to play in and sellect english and select install. Then it does it's stuff for a bit, after a while then seems to stop during the 'Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 redisributable' screen for abit. After that it goes to the Stream updating screen but doesn't do anything for ages then gives the message 'Unable to load library Steam.dll'.
I have created a steam acrount because of this and tried again being logged into steam whilst starting the process again but the same thing happens. I have checked the system requirement and think I have all the required systems to run the game. I also bought Napoleon today and the same things are happening when I try and install that aswell.
Can anyone help? Normally I buy a game install and play but today I've joined numerious forums, been sat at my computer for about 3 hours trying different things and no success.
From the glee of thinking I was going to play a new game to this disappointment of the afternoon isn't good.
