Sounds~1.cab

I just bought Crysis (im so excited!), so I proceed to install it, about 75% of the way through, InstallWizard tells me that "Error 1334: Cabinet file sounds~1.cab it corrupt! Abort Retry Ignore" when i hit retry, it does other stuff, then retries, and fails, if i ignore, it just says it cant ignore, abort..well, it rolls back changes. ive done almost everything, i ever tried downloading sounds~1.cab (however nobody is putting it up :/ ) and im at a loss, i dont want to install on some1 else computer, because i cant, and i dont want to resort to getting a new copy from GameStop, so can anybody give me helpful advice?

    I'm not sure if it works this way, but could you activate the CD-key on steam and download it from there?

    Okay, so that didn't help.

    Try this:

    Restart your computer so that you have the least amount of processes running (not safe mode though). Now disable your antivirus. If you have Vista, go to User Accounts and click "turn user control on or off". Uncheck the box and hit OK. Delete anything in your Program Files folder that has Crysis in it. Now try and reinstall Crysis (with AV and UAC off). If this does not work, I don't know what to tell you. Corrupt disk maybe.

    I figured the problem, its definitely InstallShield, and the corp. that makes installshield tells me to update my drivers for install"" but its not telling me HOW, so, i figure ill just get another copy, or install on another computer (altho i cant find one)
    so if anybody else gets this problem, its not your computer, its InstallShield

    and thanks for the help, everyone
