    I'm trying to demo 3CX Phone System and downloaded 7.1. Running the install on Windows XP I'm having an issue when I try to run the install package. I get a popup window which says "This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package." User is administrator and have the latest Windows Installer 3.1. Any help appreciated.

    we need to upgrade your windows XP with windows update.

    an error during the download could take place, re-download 3CX

    Disable any antivirus software when you run the install - some can be quite aggressive and prevent the installer working properly.

    Thanks to sbsconseil and doscovery1 for their replies but with the latest Windows patches and no virus software installed -- and downloading the demo again -- I still get the same error from the installer.

    I don't know if the installer was changed on the server or not, but after downloading it for a _fourth_ time it works, and on any machine I tested it on.
