Problem with install not covered above
Sorry if this is something obvious I'm missing, but I'm getting an error when I try to install the Base 3.2.  It gives me:

Extract: error writing to file B5-Core-3_2.vp

I tried downloading it again, but got the same error.  I have a working copy of the Battlestar demo on here - no errors when I play.
Any suggestions?

Get, if you don't use WinZip or WinRAR.  Right-click on the file, choose 7-zip > Test.  What does it say?  (WinZip and WinRAR have the same function.)

Re: Problem with install not covered above
Which installation are you trying, Windows or Linux/MaxOSX ?

Also, which download location did you use ?

Re: Problem with install not covered above
I'm installing in WinXP and I found the files through the  "Download mirrors" post.  I was using WinAce, but I also tried 7-Zip.  It always fails at 53%of the extraction.  The 7-Zip test tells me there's nothing wrong...  Any other suggestions or is there another place to get the file?  I tried the 3.3 update (into its own folder) and I don't get any problems there.
