Install Error .pak file doesn't match .cab
I have been trying to install this game for a month!!! And now....
I keep getting an error message during install that says:
"xxxx .pak file doesn't match the file in the setup's .cab file. The medium from which you are running setup may be corrupted. Contact your software vendor." I get this error stating different files each time I try. I can ignore it but then the game crashes when I play it. (I have never gotten further that out of Zoe's house)
Sometimes Install just stops and says that I had a Catastrophic Failure. What is going on?
I am trying to install my second set of CDs, I already exchanged once.
I have plenty of room, the right hardware etc.
Does anyone know what could be causing this? Is it another bad set of CDs?
I also tried copying the files to the hard drive first, it does the same thing.

Yep...this is the same problem I have. Glad it's not just my computer. Let me know if you find a solution and I'll do likewise.
I got a new copy of the game, and the SAME FILES ARE CAUSING PROBLEMS!!!! We'll try something else.

"About This Forum" says that there are different publishers of the game. Maybe there is a problem with this publisher??? I am in MN btw.
