Shift 2 Installation problem

★★ Newbie

I'm trying to install NFS Shift 2 from a disk. I run the installation as an administrator and I don't get any errors. The installer runs to completion and I have the short cut on the start menu. Everything seems normal except when I try to run the game, it just runs the licence activation program. This program runs at the beginning of the installer and after I enter the code, the code is accepted and installation begins. I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times. I have installed it on a different laptop, and it installs properly. Any ideas?

If you can't install from disk. Maybe you can install from the "Origin digital" version: Some players have reported, they succeed to convert their retail disk version to Origin digital version by contacting EA support:
