Hello sharon,

I believe the message box the screenshot of which you have attached provides
a complete answer for your question:
"This could be the result of a damaged disk, a failed download or a virus".

Please try downloading the installer again.

I downloaded the new version using firefox 3?
And I get this NSIS setup error
Any idea why?

On occasions, I've had problems downloading the IDEA install through our office proxy. It only downloads part of the file, but no download error message occurs; so you think you have a successful download. When you try to use it, it shows as a corrupt or incomplete file. Sometimes I can re-download and get the full file; other times I have to download it from home. Others at my company have had the same problem. I've always assumed it was an issue with our proxy server (even though I've never had the issue with any other downloads).

Just thought I throw that out there as an FYI for you.

During the 12 years I am using a computer, I never had any problem downloading anything, except of products wrapped with the NSIS installer.....
I saw this message before; it has nothing to do with corrupt or incomplete file...

It's very easy to check. We provide MD5 checksums for all the files we distribute.
If you tell me which version exactly you're trying to install, I can tell
you the expected MD5 checksum, so you can verify for yourself whether the
file is indeed corrupt.
