I'm having numerous problems with exe-based downloads. InstallAnywhere, regardless of what kind of file is downloaded, refuses to extract and requests that I "...select another location to extract to:".
From the InstallAnywhere sites I have surmized that the problem is more than likely corrupted downloads as I have GB of space available on my hard drive. So I have gone back through the, albeit painful, process of re-downloading the same HUGE file (some of these files are 300+ MB) only to get the same error message.
This is painful and wasteful! Is there another way to get these files? Isn't there some checksum process that can be used to ensure that the file isn't corrupted? I have winMD5sum available (http://www.nullriver.com) to do MD5 checks when I want to verify downloads.

I've got the same problem and re-downloading it don't change anything...
It would be nice to have some checksum process for those who wants as you suggest it.
A simple checksum could help people having trouble...
