Is there some antivirus program working at odds with your downloading? Are you using a manager? Is the completed download the same size as the file indicates?

Are you using a download manager or just IE/firefox to do the download. Because of the large file size, a download manager is almost manditory. Try the one mentioned in the instructions for the download - it worked great for me.

If you find a file that is corrupt, then why not try what worked for me, with exactly the same problem.

Yes, I downloaded the files many times, and just used up bandwidth.

What worked, in my case, was to use WINRar or Squeeze to actually repair the damaged file.

Guess what.....it did repair the damaged compressed file, and allowed me to carry on installing.

I find it strange that so many people are having this problem, the problem surely could not be so many computers. I have no idea where the corrupt file originated its quirky error.

And, yes, I now also use, and did use then, the free download manager that Auran suggested. That works well now on any download. I also used it for the file you mentioned. Of course it did not have any effect on the file that was corrupted.

Give it a go, please. By the way, if you do a search for your problem, you will find many instances throughout the forum. Sometimes, a search is far quicker than waiting for someone to come along with the answer, when it is right there after a search.
