If you are lucky the disk version will install PhysX correct right from the beginning.

OK tried the "Run" not repair option but firstly there is not an option to do that I just double clicked it and it said "The currently installed version of the drivers is newer than what you are trying to install, aborting the installation."

You did try to run the game first? (Just to make sure)

Alright the PhysX issue is now gone but it says it has to do an "Online Release Check" which I said yes to but this says there was an error and to click a link to http://eauk.custhelp.com/ but this says "Can't reach this page"

Did you reinstalled the NVIDIA PhysX software or was the error gone after the disk installation?

Error was gone after disc installation, but that's when I got the online check error.
