Error 1305.error reasing from file c:\program

If it is a valid error, not a virus or whatever,
these programs have security ideosyncrasies
which demands all files stay in place and unchanged
or they will protest to the point of not working.
You cant just delete from a program what you dont like
being there anymore.
These error reports are horrible.
They are not user friendly.
With every error should be a valid solution.
Even if you need a gig of database for the error reports.
The solution is to force the gaming industry and
software developers to include layman type solutions to
all thir errors possible.

Una to reinstall. Get this MX: ''Error 1305.error reading from file EmsworkspfilesC3WizardsSTUSSus.dat. Verify that the file exists and that ypou can use it. ?: How do I verify?

You have to check that the disc you are installing from is not damaged or if it is a burned copy is not a bad copy.

Anytime you get this error during a reinstall or install of windows it is due to the installation disc having a problem. occassionally you will find a bad drive but rarely the case.

I cannot get Command & Conquer Tiberium Wars to install.

This is a general error which arises with corrupted files.First Make a "Checkdisk" test and make sure that your D drive is fine with out any bad sectors.If everything is fine,then probably that particular file is corrupted.Assuming you have reinstalled the game,the file may be corrupted in the dvd itself.Check if the game is working on othe systems.Also first copy the game contents to your hard drive and try installing the game from there. Install the game in a different directory [drive].
