If the password is correct then the archive must be corrupt.

Thats an old source for the files. Try THIS ONE

Also try extracting it to the Desktop first then cut/paste it to the appropriate folder. Which looks to be Steam (Which is unfortunate for you ) from the error report you posted, and i don't know their file system so can't help with that, i assume you know though.

Something wrong with the Steam version? I could use my two retail copies instead, but I installed the one I bought on Steam instead so that I would get the Steam interface integrated into the game.

And yes, I buy games three times over if I like them. <.<

No, Steam should not have a problem with it. There is even a Steam Group for it started by the creators of FoK. I just don't like Steam

I don't understand why its not working properly. Maybe it doesn't have the proper permissions to extract to the Steam folders? Try extracting it to the Desktop as i suggested. Failing that download it from the link i provided and try again.


Confuzzled

I have had FoK (at least some version) installed before on the Steam version, but it all went when I was forced to purge my hard drive with holy fire due to there being some crappy virus that was not removable using conventional methods.

I can't see that affecting it now, if the HDD was wiped entirely. In fact its not possible, unless that sector on the HDD was irreparably corrupted by the Virus and/or its effects, which you would have noticed by now.

i assume you know how to go about extracting the Archive to a specified place.

do you play through steam or just use the game finder on the game itself?
