EA finnaly got back to me. This step fixed it.

2. If you do not find any scratches, fingerprints, or marks of any kind on your CD, try renaming the InstallShield folder:
- Double-click on the My Computer icon.
- Double-Click on the C:
- Double-Click on Program Files then on Common Files.
- Right-Click on the InstallShield folder.
- Select Rename.
- Rename it to InstallShieldOld.
- Start the installation again to reinstall the InstallShield components with the newest version.

Nice others bothered to help you. Could not have helped myself as I don't have the game.

Glad you sorted it.:)
