I also get this problem, did you manage to find a fix, I tried win rar and win zip and nothing helped. I haven't played FH2 for over a year but keen to start out again. Any help really appreciated :)

Well, when FH2 installed perfectly I was like, sweet, but then my BF2.exe file wasn't working, and when I reinstalled it, it fixed the problem, but now that my BF2.exe is working, FH2 won't extract properly? So I was fed up with downloading new copy's so I just scrapped it. I may try downloading the file on a different computer though, because I think I know what's making the files corrupt.

Try downloading it with a download manager such as:

http://www.flashget.com/en/download.htm

Then download the torrent.
Then double click on the torrent, it should open in Flash Get.
Set the download location of the torrent to your desktop, so your computer doesn't give you any bullshit like it can't modify a folder.
And finally change the name of the torrent title to something other than the default name, such as "FH2Full" without the quotations.

If that doesn't work, you can also try downloading V2.25, then downloading the incremental patch.
Hope this helps!

Did it work for you? Because I downloaded it on another computer in my house with Flash Get, and it worked perfectly.

I figured out that I can't download any big files on my computer because there's something wrong with it and it says "Windows Explorer (Not Internet Explorer) stopped working" then it says "Windows Explorer is now restarting" and when it restarts, it refreshes all my folders and desktop icons, which in turn, corrupts the file because for that split second the file is still downloading, but it has nowhere to download to. So, there is a missing part to a bunch of files because it happens quite often. (I run windows 7 Home Premium)

Are you sure that it's not just the password that has been entered wrongly?

It's not, you can't even get to the password part of installation if you get the CRC error.

I have run out of bandwidth for the moment so I will try again next week with a new download (fingers crossed). I tried doing an unrar with ignore errors enable and was able to start the patching process but it died after a short period. Hanging to play FH2 I only played the initial release and played a lot of FH1 and have to say it is without a doubt the best WW2 game I have ever played so well and truly happy to be patient and get it going. Are there many Australians involved in the FH2 community or is it predominantly German? Better brush up on my 'Deutsch Sprechen' for teamspeak fun!

Ah poor chap, bandwith restrictions are such a stupid thing...
There are a few Ozzis around, but you have to rally them for a game. Most players are from Europe and most Germans know English. So no worries.

G'day m8. :)

Das ist sehr gut, ich sprechen sie kleine deutsch!

I will do my best to rally the lazy aussies then, I live out in the bush so we dont have any choice for internet provider so I get the expensive one with limited bandwidth :)
