    Hi everyone!

    This is my first post in this forum, and I really hope to get some help, because I am pretty desperate right now. I've already looked through other posts and Forums., but I have not found any solution there. I've also done a memory test, but no errors could be found.

    Last week I bought my new computer and installed Win 7 Professional 64bit. Everything seemed to work fine, but some installations (which worked on my laptop with Win XP) cancelled with strange errors. I thought this was due to my 64 bit installation of Windows 7, so I reinstalled Windows with a 32 bit version. (If someone asks if they are legal versions: yes they are). But the installation problems were still there.

    It seems as if my Windows installation says some .cab files which I try to install are corrupted.

    These are some examples of programs which I wasn't able to install:

    • Microsoft Office 2007
    • Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 (which I need as soon as possible)
    • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
    • AVG Antivirus (although I managed to install an older version)
    • DirectX (only in 64 bit; obsolete)
    If necessary, my PC configuration:
    AMD Phenom II X4
    Asus M4A785TD-M EVO
    PowerColor Radeon HD 5770
    GeIL DIMM 4GB DDR3-1330
    I would be really glad if someone could help me out!
    Thanks in advance!

    I assume you're trying to install these from DVD/CD's. Just a suggestion, but try copying one of the disks to your HD and install from there. See if you get the same corruption warnings.

    some of it, yes. And I do get the same errors. Strangely enough, when I tried to install Office 2007 with Compatability Mode for Windows XP SP 3 no errors occured. Sadly Office is the only thing I could install with this strategy... :(
