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.
