Can't install simulators; archive corrupted? HELP PLZ
Yesterday I downloaded BlackBerry_Simulators_184.108.40.2061_8900 & BlackBerry_Simulators_220.127.116.111_8350i-Sprint from the BlackBerry website. Once the download was complete, I attempted to install the 8900 sim, and received an error message. I then attempted to install the 8350i sim, and received the same. Both times the error looked like...
I tried double clicking to install, as well as right click>Run As Admin, but received the same error no matter what.
I then thought maybe it was due to downloading both simulators simultaneously, so I downloaded just the 8900 sim alone and again attempted to install it. Unfortunately I received the same error as above.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what could be causing me to have this problem as I have a half dozen other sims that I don't recall having any installation issues with?
Is there a way to fix this so that I can install these simulators as I would really like to be able to use them?
Also, I have Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1 64-bit
Thanks in advance to anyone who replies!
To anyone else having this problem, I have since figured out that this issue is a direct result of using Firefox.
I recently attempted to download another simulator using Firefox and received the above error message again. I immediately closed the browser, opened Internet Explorer and tried again. Whala, it downloaded without any issues whatsoever. So I tried this a second time with another simulator using Firefox, and again got the error message. Again went to IE, and it downloaded with no issue.
So while I am unsure about other browsers, I am 100% certain in this case that the error is due to Firefox. So if you experience the issue with a browser other than Firefox or IE, I strongly recommend installing IE and seeing if it solves the problem
Hope this helps!
