Hey All -

I've a swanky iMac running XP via Bootcamp.
I play great time killer games like Caesar IV and CivCity Rome and have done so on this machine for many months now.

Here's my problem:

City Life 2008 Install errors out on me.

I buy all my PC games from filefront.com as I prefer digital copies of games. This has been working great for me. I bought City Life 2008, dowloaded it and the install always errors out on .mesh game data files. All of them - some 25+ files.

I own a hard copy of 2006 City Life and have tried to install that. Same deal, oddly enough. So I reckon it's something to do with a missing connection between these kinds of files and what BootCamp/XP should be doing with them. Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!
Amelia

FYI:
iMac Leopard
Windows XP SP2
Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz
2.98 GB RAM
ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT
QUOTE Thanks
