FS 17 Platinum Edition for PC Will Not Install

Post by dave500 » Sun Feb 18, 2018 8:40 pm

I received my DVD of FS 17 Platinum Edition an hour ago.

I was shocked to discover the game will not install on my Windows 10 PC.

I am getting this error:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Farming Simulator 17\dataS2.gar

An error occurred while trying to copy a file:
The source file is corrupted.

If I click retry, the same thing happens. If I click Ignore, I see that other source files
are alleged to be corrupted.

I did not anticipate any issues of installation with a new game. To say I am disappointed
with FS 17 is an understatement.

if it was a DVD from a Dealer, you can try to Change the DVD.
If you could try to start the install with Right klick on setup.exe and use Install as Administrator...

I attempted to install as Administrator, but the same error messages appear.

So is this really a stand-alone game or does it require FS 17?

Have you a link to what you bought? I'm not sure if the platinum edition was sold as an update and also the full game and dlc?

The DVD cover states this is a Full Game.

Have you tried restarting your PC and trying again?

Dave,

Did you ever get this sorted? Having the same issue now with FS17 platinum edition.... its giving me the message “an error has occurred while trying to copy a file. Data error (cyclic redundancy check).

Is it because I’m running DirectX12?? Do I need DirectX11 instead??
