    hi,

    i'm currently having ALOT!! of trouble with installing CS source. Feel like i've tried everything, but nothing works. This is what is happening:

    1. when i actually manage to get the game menu running (as it seems the cd could be corrupted in some way)... i start to install the game. And then it ALWAYS hits a certain point where installation stops and comes up with an error saying:

    ERROR 1305. Error reading from file: C://programfiles/steam/steamapps/counter-strike source shared.gcf. Verify the file exists and that you can access it.

    ...and of course goes no further than that. I have gone into the steam tech support site and offers nothing helpful. So i thought i'd try here.

    Just so you all know, i have gone into the steam properties menu on the game and gone into local files and 'verified integritiy of game cache' ...but that does nothing either.
    This is also my second copy of this game, as i thought i had a faulty first copy, but the problems are of course repeating.

    thanks for any help

    Do you have HL2, or did you just purchase CS:S without having HL2?
