Sims Deluxe Edition won't Install

  1. My Window's XP Home Edition computer was reformatted and now it won't install my Sims Deluxe Edition! Once I click "Install" on the Autostart screen after a few minutes this error message pops up - "An installation support file could not be installed. Data error (cyclic redundancy check)." How do I fix that so I can install my Sims?!

    That error message means that the data from the CD is corrupted.

    Most commonly, this is due to a scratched, smudged or otherwise unreadable CD.

    If you have two CD-ROMs, try the other one. And if it still does it, attempt to clean the bottom of the CD.

    dint help

    I have all the data installed, but whenever i click on it, it says, "it has come to our attension that you have installed another expansion pack after sims deluxe, and that we will atumatically update your installation. Press ok to proceed." But i haven't installed another expansion pack, and whenever i press ok, it goes to the same installation screen forsims deluxe, and it does the same thing i had the problem with to begin with. Any suggestions?

    Hi Haloman: Have you found a solution yet or have you 'binned' the game?
