Ah, that you get if the file is already open. Do you run some shell
extension that might want to look into the MSI file, or virus scanners?
I also recall a KB article that the Indexing Service sometimes prevents
files from being opened.

Quadruple-click could also cause the problem, if you try to start
multiple installers.

Ok, so it's likely incomplete download.
