LOD expansion installation error, need help :(

While installing the expansion at 99% I continuously receive the error,

setup was unable to add the following file to c:\programfiles\diablo II\d2char.mpq:binkw32 dll

and the install closes. I have searched google relentlessly and couldnt find anything. Have tried copying the mpq manually into the game folder and doing a full install rather than multiplayer, nothing has worked so far.

Anyone have experience with this and know how to fix it? would be greatly appreciated.

Re: LOD expansion installation error, need help :(

Are you using the original CD's to install this game, or a backup copy? You mention that this error comes up during the installation of the expansion, which means the classic installation worked fine? If so, there should be a binkw32.dll file in your Diablo 2 installation directory; are you able to confirm this?

I think it can be a cd phisycal problem.Try cleaning it up a little before installing.
