Unhappy Inability to start Spore

I brought Spore in the sale recently, and it has consistently failed to run for me . On attempting to begin, I recieve the standard: "Preparing to run SPORE" message, but then recieve a message saying "Configuration Script Failed [2000]"

On pressing OK, the screen blacks out as if running Spore, but I then recieve a message saying: "Could not find a needed package.

The data directory is missing or corrupt. [1004]"
I am then booted back to desktop.

I have verified the integrity of the cache repeatedy, and gone as far as deleting local content and reinstalling. Either way, I have been unable to use Spore.
The context of the error messages suggests that it is not a problem with the computer.

I'm having the exact same issue with mine.
Pity you cant start SporeApp.exe from within the steam directory.
