I get this error (see pic)after trying to install the 1.3 update, this happens right after i just installed the game. Thanks for any help snag0000jc7.th.png pic game out small so i'll tell you what it says Setup could not determine the current version of your call of duty 2 installation. Please verify that the game has been properly installed.

Is there a way to fix this without having to reinstall. thanks

you have a registry problem, as Romeo said. Had a dude with the exact same problem and error message yesterday on IWN. check out the thread where we solved it for him:

I wish that was the problem but unfortunately that wasn't it :( when Romeo suggested that link i checked the registry and all was there (See pic) errorfu2.th.jpg

I can install and play the 1.0 game fine and i can update with the 1.2 patch but not the 1.3 patch. Iv tried d/l the patch from different sites including Activision. I don't no what to do if all else fails i must buy some DVDs and backup my stuff :( and that will take alongtime. Please keep the suggestion coming if you can help. thanks

EDIT: Is there a 1.3 update that's .zip or .rar so maybe i can just extract the files where the need to go? instead of using the setup.exe file

Well i got it fixed and heres the fix if anyone has the same problem has me.

Solution to error 1610 installshield in Rome Total War or other games ***This solution might work for any program or game what present the Error -1610: Configuration data is corrupt *** This is an Installshield error, dont ask me the why...but This is the solution and i have tested a LOT of times. *** This error is caused by conflicting entries in the registry. *** You will need administrative privileges in windows 2000 or XP to make this work OK? (Dont use the guest account by example) *** To get administrative privileges in your windows go to this link: http://consumer.installshield.com/kb.asp?id=Q108379 *** First uninstall the troublesome software (in my case Rome Total War)

A) Clean your registry with a ad-hoc program, i recommend Tune-Up utilities 2006 is shareware, and it make a great job, here is the link: http://www.tune-up.com/ , use the option Clean up repair----Tune up registry cleaner, RESTART YOUR COMPUTER

B) Delete the folder C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Driver from the machine, Believe me THIS is SAFE (AT LEAST SEND HER TO THE RECYCLE BIN IF YOU DONT THRUST ME! LOL)

C) Right-click on the installation file that you are trying to install and select Properties. The typical names for installation files are setup.exe, update.exe, installer.exe, etc. Your installation file can be found on the CD where you are running the setup from. In the Properties dialog, click on the Version tab.

D) Look at the File Version field to determine the version number of the IsScript engine you need:

D) Goto this link to download the ISScript engine you will need: http://consumer.installshield.com/kb.asp?id=Q108158

E) Install the engine you will need and restart your computer.

F) The best part....THE MAGIC!: Open a DOS BOX, goto the file or the CD unit that have the file to begin the installation and READ CAREFULLY the instrucctions. The SETUP FILE is an example, it might work with other names

Creating an installation log file

/verbose : Generate verbose InstallScript engine log file (InstallScript MSI projects only)

For an InstallScript MSI project installation program, you can create a verbose InstallScript-engine-installation log file using the /verbose argument followed by the path to the log file you want to create. A typical command is Setup.exe /verbose"C:\IS.log". The log file generated can help you troubleshoot errors in installing the InstallScript engine on a target system. The /verbose option requires a full path to the log file, and not a relative path.

G) Goto the log file created, and near the end of the file , in the section showing the error that caused to abort the installation search for smomething like this: 'HKLM\Software\Classes\Installer\Products\B6BB246AD1AC2414D84D13C8F3D38C43\SourceList' (This example is for Rome Total war, but works for other programs), LOOK the LOOONG alphanumerical chain, Copy and paste it in Notepad for example.

H) MAKE A REGISTRY BACKUP! and run Regedit.exe in the Windows folder and make a full search for the LOOONG chain you founded, and DELETE every instance you found, repeat this until it disapear from the whole registry. By the way this is the internal code for the program that cause the error 1610.

I) Goto step A

J) Install The program and enjoy!
