           Summary: Wine fails to copy a readable file when installing Sims
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.15.
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-misc
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: Rincebrain at gmail.com

When using wine to install the Sims 2, the installer complains that it is unable
to copy the file "TSData/Res/UserData/groups.cache" from the DVD, and prompts
the user to retry or abort the installation. Continuous retries have no effect.
The same behavior occurs if the user dumps the disc to an ISO file and attempts
to install it. The file itself is perfectly readable, and in fact, when the
installer prints this error, it has already copied the file to the destination
directory on the hard drive. Removing the already-copied copy has no effect on
the process.

This behavior has been present since at least wine 0.9.13, and it is unknown if
this was ever not the case.

dmesg reports no read errors when this error is printed out. wine prints out no
debug messages when this error occurs.
