[233] Installer complains about 'Data1.cab' - what do I do?

I've just installed VS 2005, and now I'm trying to install ReSharper build 233. When I run the installer, it runs through a couple of progress bars, and then, while partway through "Copying new files", hangs up and tells me 'Data1.cab' is corrupt and cannot be used. I've tried downloading the installer again, but the error keeps occurring. Any ideas?

I hope you folks can help--I've used ReSharper on VS 2003, and now it's a struggle for me to work without it!

Hello MJWach,

other users haven't reported this problem, so it seems that the problem is
really with
your downloaded installation package. How do you run the installer - do you
save it to the
local disk first or run directly from Web? Also, you can examine the offending
Data1.cab file
when the error dialog claiming its corruption is displayed - you only need
to locate the Data1.cab
in you temp directory where it is unpacked during installation. If you check
the Data1.cab
(e.g. its size should be reasonable), this would help to further diagnose
the problem.

I download the file, save it to my desktop, and run it. It's 21,283,352 bytes in size, for what that's worth. I have looked for data1.cab while the installer was showing the error, and I found about a dozen temporary files that might have been the one it was referring to. All were a few MB or a few hundred KB in size. According to Windows Explorer, all were empty. I don't know what this means. I will have one of my teammates try the install--maybe that will help illuminate the situation.

I am also having this same problem. I'm not sure if there is other information that I could provide that would be helpful to you.
