You are probably using Comodo Internet Security and it is quarantining any installs it doesn't like or gives false positive detections for - and without telling you!. I hate it when applications do that. I guess you either need to rethink your security provider or tell it to ignore some areas or sources.

Just move or reinstall the gamefiles wherever else you want (after sorting out your security) then point the patch updater at the correct folder, update the game with the all-in-one patch and hopefully you can then play it.

You may have to remove any old DRM drivers that may have been installed from previous attempts to run the unpatched game.

Did that. Patched to 2.5, then ran the game. didnt play my saves coz I need to install all my mod/script collection. But I managed to play the bonus scenario, without a hitch. So thats a plus. lol

"recommend another security suite" - This is not really the place (nor am I the correct person) for that but feel free to browse OT for security topics such as in this thread.

As an update for future forum browsers:

Issue fixed by removing Comodo Internet Security Suite, and replacing it with another :)
