Hello everyone, i'm trying to install the MYSQL 5.1 Community but whenever i go to start the installer package i get this error:

This installation package could not be opened. Verify that te package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows INstaller package.

I have just downloaded the package and i have full administration rights.

thanks,

lars.

Is this Vista or XP?

If Vista, is UAC disabled?

The downloaded executable could be corrupted - how big is it, and is it viable to re-download it?

Did you use a download manager?
