As the thread title says, I'm having trouble installing Splinter Cell Double Agent on my PC. The game disc is a DVD, and when I first put it in my DVD drive the game splash screen comes up and a menu with several options such as install, manual, etc. appears. If I choose any of these options from the menu, an error window pops up with the title:

"Splinter Cell Double Agent: SCDAAutorun.exe- Bad Image"

The message contained in the window says:

"The application or DLL C:WINDOWS\system32\xinput1_1.dll is not a valid windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

So after that error message appears I clicked "OK" and then everything seems fine and the game appears to begin installing. However, after a little more time passes I get a second error window with the title "Feature Transfer Error". The message contained in this error window reads as follows:

Feature: Basic Installation- Low resolution textures only
Component: Files2
File: H:\Disk5\data6.cab
Error: When accessing a new tape of a multivolume partition, the current block size is incorrect.

After this message displays I click OK and then the Installation process completely ends and returns to my desktop. I have no idea what either of the error messages means or if they are related in any way. I have installed other PC-DVD games on this computer with no trouble. I would really appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.

Sound like to me that you have been trying to install via image from a copy on the net..ive seen this problem elsewhere on the net and it was tracked down to an invalid image file which was downloaded.

I'm not sure what you mean by installing "...via image from a copy on the net", but I am only trying to install this game with the DVD disc I got when I bought it. You mentioned that you have seen this problem before and it was tracked down to an image file. What is an image file? Did the other people with this problem find a way to fix it?
