    Okay, this is a problem I've had with other games in the past. I bought a copy of ArmA tried to install it and couldn't because of this error, however eventually it installed by ignoring the errors and I end up with a broken game. I know it's broken because there are missing textures, the team options not working, unable to install patch.

    I've tried reinstalling several times, each time something different is broken. I replaced the copy, but this also led to a broken game although errors do not show up when installing. I tried using daemon tools to install but that doesn't work.

    I would have thought that the dvd drive was ****ed but I've just tried to download and install the demo and it gave the same error.

    Has anyone got ideas about what the problem is?

    CRC errors are related to integrity of the file in question. Make sure the game is not cracked version.
