I bought the game today and downloaded the installer via the provided link. I tagged it 1.17 because that’s the version I see on the first page of the installer. I receive the following error when I attempt installation:
“An error occurred while trying to copy a file:
The source file is corrupted.”
I see this for data\bitmaps\bitmaps.pak. If I ignore the error I then see it for:
data\composites\comp_0.ini, up to comp_15 and higher
default ship design txt files, etc.
I downloaded the installer multiple times for different mirrors, made sure it wasn’t in read-only mode, unblocked Windows non-digitally signed warnings, ran it in compatibility mode, as administrator, ran it from a different hard drive, installed it to a different location, ran it from another computer, etc and nothing worked.
Edit: Using Windows 7 64-bit.
I tried searching other threads and didn’t come up with much, but I did disable my AV (MSE) and got the same result. I ran an updated malware search and a full AV search and also came up with nothing.
