I have a problem installing sim city 4 deluxe edition. It gets around halfway throught the installation and then it says displays an error message about it failing to copy a certain file. If anyone has had this happen to them and knows how to solve it then help would be appreciated.

It's not my bunny, I got it somewhere else.

I had similar problems for two reasons. One was anti-virus programmes running in the background. They love to screw up installations something cronic... must be a hobby of theirs.

Second was CD/DVD emulation software which screwed up reading data completely at random.

However if you have neither running I vacate the floor for someone more knowledgeable.

That didn't work.

It's always "sim city_1.dat"

Could be a duff disc - but IIRC that file is rather big!

If thats the case then i'll just buy it again. It's not that expensive now anyway. Or i'll buy a disk scratch fill thingy.

You should try contacting Maxis, and see if they can help - especially if you bought the game.
