Company of Heroes Error 10006 at 100% on Installation

Recommended Posts

I just bought Company of Heroes yesterday, brand new, and after I reached 100% in the installation, it gives me Error 10006 (Sound file WW2/ (...) missing or corrupted). I tried again and got the same result. I did a bit of research and it says this error is most likely caused by dirty/damaged disks, but I would be suprised if that was the case, since I just bought the game and, after observation, I can say that the CD is completely clean. Nevertheless, I cleaned the CD and am currently trying to install it again.

Any suggestions to solve this problem?

I completed yet another installation and got a new error, once again after 100%... Error 10008. Here's an image of the window, it's in French, though if any translation is needed, I can do that.

No I haven't. I'd rather find a solution on the forum.

Error 10006 indicates a dirty disc. If your sure its totally clean then try with a different cd drive or try copying all the files off it on to a folder on your desktop and install from there.

Error 10008 is where the installer detected a previous installation and didn't like it, make sure you delete all traces of the folders/registry keys and use a program called windows installer cleanup (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Installer_CleanUp_Utility) found by using google.

For more help post on the relic forums your much more likely to get help there http://forums.relicnews.com/forumdisplay.php?f=183&page=9&sort=lastpost&order=&pp=25&daysprune=-1 Specifically this page http://forums.relicnews.com/showthread.php?t=213636

I would also suggest contacting support if you can't get this solved. That's precisely what support are paid for and you'll be waiting a lot less time for a solution.
