I bought the game off of D2D and it downloaded just fine (though it took an hour).
PoL installed just fine.
It seemed to go through the process of uninstalling the game first. Apparently I still had the game on my system.
Now, when I try to just install FFXI (base game) it gives me the following errors right away after it jumps to the full screen installation process:
Error 2711. The specified Feature name ('EX567_ALL') not found in Feature table.
Error: -1603 Fatal error during installation
Consult Windows Installer Help (Msi.chm) or MSDN for more information.
I contacted SE and they sent me to a page to update my Install Shield driver, but, when following the instructions, I found that the "file version" that I have is 12.xx... and the highest file version that has any sort of "instructions" on that page is 11.xx...
So I'm stuck again. I replied to their help email and hopefully I hear back, but does anyone know what might be going wrong? I'm not very computer savvy, but I can dig through My Computer and find files you point to and follow instructions.
