Windows 7: Setup Files are Corrupted... game from a DVD

Setup Files are Corrupted... game from a DVD

Hello everyone. I thank you in advance for trying to help me with my problem, I sure hope there exists a solution out there...

I'm trying to install STALKER: Clear Sky from the DVD it came on onto a fresh install of Windows7 Ultimate x64, but when I click install, it just gives an error message saying "Setup files are corrupted. Please obtain a new copy of the software". This is super annoying. I tried google but everyone else who is having this problem is having it with downloaded files. I know for sure this DVD is good because I immediately installed it on my other windows (dual boot 7/xp on 2 hdds) and it worked just fine. I've tried safe mode, installing as administrator, and doing a clean startup but nothing helps. I'm also having trouble installing FSX but that is a whole nother story...

One thing I noticed is that the setup files on the DVD are .bin files. Dunno if that helps at all. Thanks.

Hi, if you are having a general problem with installing software on your PC, it may be worth running a Repair install of Windows 7 from the Install disk.
Is your other PC running a copy of Windows 7 x64 as well?
Also could you please fill in your System Specs under User CP, it can come in very handy for people trying to help you.

7 Ultimate x64 / XP Home x32

Thank you for the help osholt. I don't have another PC, just 1 with 2 hard drives with win7 x64 on one and winXP x32 on the other so I can boot to which ever I choose when I press power. I didn't think of doing a repair with the win7 disk. I'll try that next. Also, I've added my system specs in case it might help someone.
