are you sure you have the right product key ?

how did you obtain the Installation Disk and Serial Key --- did you buy it or you just have downloaded it illegally...

another possibility is that your serial is OEM, and the disk is Retail ( and opposite... )

I bought the game and used the product key on the case. I've tried several times since and have no problem with the key number, (though I checked, I may have inputted it wrong) ,but the game continued to give an error message on the second disk. I don't know why, but after about five or six attempts, I put the second disk into a different drive, changed the path, and it started started loading. ???? It proceeded to load the next OK, but then hung up on the last one, then crashed. I might mention that this game stopped working for me after I installed service pack 3 on XP, but I thought it should work on Win 7. A check on "Can You Run It", indicated I have the right hardware config.

so it's probably either scratched CDs; bad sectors on the HDD that the install in trying to write to (run CHKDSK to verify and resolve this); or a faulty CD drive/connector/controller.

CDs are in pristine condition, no scratches on either side. Chkdsk found no problems. DVD rom drive has hung up before, but the DVD write drive works flawlessly. I'm off to the next room to see if I can install it on my old Vista laptop.

if you install it with no problems, then it`s your current machine...otherwise you have installation disks issue...

I forgot that I had installed win 7 on the laptop. It failed at the same point. It's hard to believe that the install discs are bad since it went all the way to half of the 4th disc at one point before crashing. I also had seen somewhere that someone else had the same problem with the second disc not loading, but no one responded to his question so I don,t know if it was ever resolved. Anyway, thanks to both of you, I guess I'll have to chunk this one.

You can still try in on another machine / OS......if the installation goes fine, then Windows 7 doesn`t support the product...

please note that you`ll need to try installing the product on a different OS ( Windows XP for example )...

I have the same problem, I put in the second disc and it asks for
data3.cab. Well when I explore the disc I find the setup file and
in that is data3.cab, but its empty, I installed it on my XP first
and it worked. I have Windows 7 Home Premium, but I also tried
it on Vista, SAME problem. I have put all the discs in and all the
data.cab are empty, does it remove them to prevent piracy? I
could be totally wrong I have no clue, compatibility issues with
Windows 7? AND vista?
