I've been having some issues with WB on my laptop- terrible FPS, some keys not working- and I thought I'd do a clean install.
Unfortunately, I get a 'download error' and 'catastrophic failure every time I try to reinstall. I tried grabbing a new installer file from the IEN site, but it made no difference.
ANybody else come across this issue? Another game installed just fine.Any ideas anyone?

This is weird.

Might be a power issue. Similar behavior with a desktop about a dozen years ago, wound up being a video card drawing to much power. But in my case crashed to BSOD flying one night. Eventually, I could not even install Windows. No diagnostics showed any problem with the card or installing drivers(when Windows even installed), rendered fine, but it'd blow up again in short order. On an unrelated whim, I took the good fan off of the 4400 I had in the rig and put it on a 4600 that had a dead one. Stuck it in, and Voila!, no more problem.

The web-installer has usually been problematic, for me. Painfully slow and often, corrupted files. I always DL the full version and install.

Thanks for the ideas-I didn’t see an option for a full download. I’ll look again!

Used to be an option on the DL page, apparently, they've dropped that option, in house. Been a few years since I DLed fresh.
