View Full Version : Corrupt cabinet file error message upon install

I keep getting a corrupt cabinet file message when trying to install. I assumedI needed the newest version for the simulator.
I did try todownload 2 other install files and they will not accept the simulater key that i received via email.
Has anyone experienced this and/or have a solution?

Yes - I just tried to install and got the corrupt cabinet file message as well.
What I did:
I uninstalled the previous version as suggested.
I then downloaded from this link:
And ran the msi from a local drive.

Try clearing your browser cache, then deleting the install file. Then save the file again to a different location and try.
I usually rely on the market to clear out my cash :)
Okay - I half listened to you:
I didn't clear out the cache (just out of curiosity I wanted to see how if it would work by just downloading again):
Downloaded the msi file again (to local disk) - overwrote last download.
Ran install - it worked no problem this time - which would indicate that it did become corrupt during the download - although I thought that CRC checking was supposed to overcome this sort of thing?
Thanks for the help Ray!
