i have been trying to install msfs2004 with express, partial custom, or full custom setup. In CD #3, msgame8.cab fails to be read, and setup is terminated "because of corrupt file, unavailable disk space, or not enough memory for swap file". I copied the CDs in the hard disk and tried all types of setups again, opened the .cab file trying to extract it but was not possible because the .cab file works as a sum. Deserves of mention the fact that i opened the .cab with more than 5 unzipping applications. Setup told me to close any applications opened. Being advised from DrWatson and other similars, i closed EVERYTHING, but still. I freed conventional and all other types of memory. (The 4 CDs were in top-shape, not scratched). Many hours of making the best of the computer, for what?
Gigabyte KV7AXP - Ultra
1GB RAM DDR-333
Ge-Force 4 - 4800SE 128MB
Lots of HDDs
not to mention cd-rw,rom,dvd-rw stuff
XP GR HOME ORIGINAL
NTFS (not fast)
Contact MS to replace the disk.
