Can't install the demo

I downloaded the demo from gamershell. After unzipping the zip-file and execute the empireatwardemo.exe i get an windows error message 1 second after clicking. There is a problem with setup.exe (inside the empirewardemo.exe?). The unzipping worked corect. I used 2 different unzip programs.

The demo should be an .exe file, at about 759mb size.

It should unzip itself.

On some sites the the demo is a zip file. Like gamershell.com or most of the german sites.

See here: http://www.gamershell.com/download_12246.shtml

You actually got it? How long did it take to download?

i actually had a problem with the demo after it was installed. wouldn't run at all and would just hang up at the loadng screen after i clicked the single player button. then again, i did an autorun after the install, so that might be my issue. retrying.

i was disapointed in graphics. I turned it to the max. Can someone tell me is it like in black and white it sets the textures for you. I mean if i have a bad video card for example, will i be able to set graphics detail to maximum or not; or will it just say the detail is at max, but really it wont be. Please help!
