Mods - if you need to move this to the "Games" Section - please do so. But i dont think this is a "game" problem.

My sister is running WIN XP (SP1 i think) and she bought Lego Star Wars for her son.

when she tries to install the game she gets the following error message:

Error 1330. A file that is required cannot be installed because the cabinet file E:\Defaul~1.cab has an invalid digital signature. This may indicate that the cabinet file is corrupt. Error 3 was returned by WinVeriftyTrust."

she then clicks "OK" and gets this message:
Error: -1603 Fatal Error during installation. Consult Windows Installer help (MSI.chm) or MSDN for more info.

is this program specific? or a windows problem? And how can this be fixed?

FYI - her "E:" drive is the drive with the game CD in it.

Hi Bleepster

My first guess on this one would be that this is a damaged CD. The CD-ROM is reading what it thinks is the correct data from the CD but when the installer is using this data, its is not finding what it expects and therefore is throwing that error at you.

If you sister bought this from a reputable retailer then I would take it back to the shop and ask for a replacement, I'd imagine as long as you have a receipt then they will be happy to oblige you.

Hope this helps
