Hello,

I recently downloaded POVray and was trying to begin the installation process,
but it won't even start. I get various error messages. I tried repeating the
download, but it seems that each download gives me a different error message.
Was wondering if anyone could help me. I believe in am working with a 32bit
system (messages on my computer say Win32).

Here is the first error message that I see:

"Installer integrity check has failed. Common causes include incomplete download
and damaged media. Contact the installer's author to obtain a new copy."

As I mentioned, I tried to download several other times, but these did not work
either. On another copy I got this message:

"The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is
incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line
sxtrace.exe tool for more details. "

Yet another copy gives me this message:

"The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000005). Click OK to close
the application."

I'm just trying to get the program installed at this point. Any help would be
appreciated!

Thanks!

Sounds like a browser or internet connection problem to me. Try clearing 
the browser cache and re-downloading.

All the files I have are 30.3 MB, except for one, which is 30.2 MB.

Thanks!

Clipka's advice is the first think to try. My download size was 31273 KB

Where did you get this installer from? I do not recognize that message.

If you right-click on the installer and choose 'Properties', there
should be a tab labeled 'Digital Signatures'. Check that this is
present and shows the exe is signed by us. A damaged file will not
have a valid digital signature.

The installer was the one I clicked on from your site, povray.org. I will
double-check the signatures.

I did try another browser, and no luck there.
