I have been trying to load Trainz Railway Simulator 2004 and during installation I keep getting the message
'CRC error. The file c:\etc\trains.ja doesn't match the file in the setup cab
file. The medium which you are running maybe corrupted'.
The message is always the same although it is not always the same file name. I have also encountered the same problem when trying to install MS Flight Sim 2002 but not when installing any other software. I am not convinced that the problem is with a corrupt CD but I think something else is causing it to happen.
I have both Norton Antivirus and Firewall but during installation I've disabled NAV auto protect and Script Blocking as well as disabling Norton Firewall. I have tried the instllation from the cd drive (Samsung CD-R/RW SW-240B0) and the DVD drive(Toshiba SD-M1712). I've have also copied the files from the CDs to temp folders on the Hard Drive and run setup from there but everytime the problem is the same.
The OS is XP Pro.
A solution would be greatly appreciated.
