Error on 1st Launch of Gamersgate version

Recommended Posts

The error reads:

Data file too short 'addons\wheeled2.pbo'.Expected 312305378 B, got 143278039 B

 

I tried installing the ARMA2 Patch 1.11 patch [url=http://www.arma2.com/download]here[/url] but no luck.

 

Based on some very old posts pertaining to this same error (but with the Steam version) in which the suggested fix was to verify the cache integrity using Steams "Verify integrity of game . . ." function, I am guessing this is a corrupted package element during download, and the best solution is to simply repeat download/install?

That is indeed the case.

Yes. Unless the source you are downloading from is already bad.

Thanks Dedmen. Me and a support volk in Stockholm (ah I guess I didn't mention, this is a Gamersgate purchase . . .) have exchanged a few emails and they are looking into whether the portion of the download that is corrupted is bad on their server copy. I am guessing that that must be it. Twice in a row, same error message during installation and if [ Ignore ] chosen, same error on attempt to run the app.
