Description

When double clicking the installation file, the following error message is displayed: "This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that it is a valid Windows Installer package".

Reason

The error occurred because the installation file was not downloaded completely.

Solution

If you have tried more than twice to download the installation file with a same download link, but still got the same error when installing. Try to change the CDN server for downloading.

For example, if you were provided a download link of CND 01 that appears as below:

Change the cdn01 in the link to another cdn address like cdn02, but the other parts shall remain the same.
