You mean - you've problems opening the setup program, or you've already installed the program and the installed thing doesn't open?

How do you run the program? Do you save it to the disk first, or run it immediately from the browser?

Maybe the downloaded file was somehow corrupted..?
Try re-downloading...

Yeah, Vlk is right, this {somewhat confusing} message means that the self-extracting exe is broken.

Please re-download.
