Error msg when opening Scrivener-29017_installer_x64.exe

“I’ve downloaded this several times but get a msg: Installer payload failed. this is likely to due to incomplete or corrupt download file.”

I had previously tried to install the Beta, but turned out to be the expired 29016 build, so uninstalled it.

Couple of ideas.

  • Check to make sure the download is complete. Delete any old files by that name, open a different browser than normal, and redownload.

  • Per … 8bf4f01ad5 reinstalling the installer may fix this error. The page gives instructions and they’re reasonably simple.
