    Angry 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:

    CRC Error
    "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.

    AAARRRRGGGHHH!!!

    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.

    NOTE---My game box says published by ASPYR Media

    "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.
