This error occurs due to a few different situations:
  • Anti-virus causing issues with the download of the installer
  • You may not have enough disk space on your computer
  • If you are installing from the ISO image extracted files that are corrupted
The ISO image should not be extracted by WinZip, we suggest using 7zip to extract the files. WinZip does not read some of the internal files of the ISO image when extracting.
