System specs please!!! :) 

Are you logged in with administrator capabilities?

You could try opening the DVD and browsing to the installation files manually, usually SETUP.exe.

What OS are you using?

OK I have been reading some forums for you and stuff and found a few things out. The most notable is that you need to have Steam installed to install even from the retail disk.
Do you have Steam installed? IMO Steam is a good system. It probably says on the back of the box that an internet connection is required to play the game, even in Singleplayer mode.

Another thing is that you may have to have Microsoft Visual C++ runtime components installed:

Im not sure how much this latter part will matter because the disk will probably install this when you get it to work.
