5.0 simulator does not install

Is anyone having luck installing the new 5.0 simulator: 

BlackBerry_Simulators_5.0.0.252_9500.exe

 

I've downloaded it 3 times and tried the install.  It fails every time with

"BlackbBerry Smartphone Simulators 5.0.0.252 (9500) Setup Wizard ended prematurely.  

 

The message goes on to read that the installation fails because of 'an error' and I should try again later. 

 

I'm running Win XP.  Anyone else seeing this or got past it?

Re: 5.0 simulator does not install

Did you ever figure out what the problem was?

I am having the same problem (with different simulator installs).  I think the problem is with Windows Installer, but haven't pinpointed it.

Re: 5.0 simulator does not install

I have not figured it out - I install those simulators on a different computer and use them there.  I have no idea what the problem is - the error message is not informative.
