Help with weird installation bug?

I have been playing SH5 on Steam for a few weeks. I got a lot of mods to work, but I grew frustrated with not being able to use some of the great content here at Subsim due to some of it being incompatible with the Steam version of the game. I went ahead and ordered a copy on DVD from Amazon.

I have uninstalled SH5 in Steam, and have run both Glary Utilities and Ccleaner. Yet this is what I get when I run the DVD installer:



Install is greyed out and Neither the Play nor Unistal buttons do anything other than close the window.

Has anyone encountered this before? Any ideas for me?

Thanks much,

Lode

*SOLVED* (almost as soon as I submitted the OP)

Drrrp. I ran the setup.exe on the disc and it seems to be working. Fingers crossed.



EDIT *NOT SOLVED*. Now that I have the DVD copy installed, when i try to hit play in uplay it launches steam and prompts me to reinstall my steam version. ugh.

Had to enter the activation key in the options in uplay. Seems to be okay now.

Let the modding begin! (crosses fingers)

Hope you got it working.
Does the disc version have the same s****y Ubisoft game launcher malfunction as the Steam version?
