I was already accepted and ordered my free playbook several weeks ago, so i'm not terribly worried about the deadline coming up...*
However, I am trying to sign my app and upload it, just so it will be available when playbooks start being sold next month.
I got my signing key and computer registered, and that all worked perfectly the first time. I was happily surprised. But the SDK I got in January obviously won't complie with the signing key, so I'm now trying to jump from beta 1 to beta3
However, the installer itself for the WW SDK Beta3 seems to be having issues...(I can't wait to look forward to all the issues on the forum after I get it installed)
I was expecting some compliing or testing problems, but not an issue with the actual install extraction itself.
I downloaded the file (several times) from this URL:
Everytime I try to install it I get the error message from InstallAnywhere: Please select another location to extract the installer to:
Research on the forums and the web indicate that the installer download itself is corrupted and there's nothing I can do to resolve it.
Thus, I sit and I wait. Unless someone else wants to provide me with the BlackBerryWebworksSDK file that does extract properly or give me some guidance.
* note: should something wierd happen and my playbook NOT show up. I will be truly pissed about faulty downloads and buggy SDK's and days to get any kind of reply...
Solved! Go to Solution.

FYI - turns out this issue is due to a bad ISP. I was dropping packets and it was reporting the download as complete.
I'm now trying to setup a new environment on a different PC with a different ISP and watching the simulator fail to install...
