BAd download file. File should be exactly 157.482.880 bytes (right click, properties on that file)
Not sure this is a bad download.... I have downloaded the file to 2 boxes on my work to test it and experienced the same problem. It might also be that the install is somewhat picky on the environment. I solved it by installing a fresh download on my Linux box. I have not yet tested a windows installation at home due to the fact I have installed directly a Linux version at home.
This might be something Oracle wants to look into....
I think you're right, my file size didn't match. I had tried downloading using both Firefox and Internet Explorer and got the same error. I'm now downloading via wget, and it's reporting the correct file size as its downloading. We'll see how it goes in an hour when it finishes. :-/
Well, after downloading a correct file, I now receive the following error message after extracting some MSIs:
1628: Failed to complete installation.
Next clue, please?
Eu.....? install it on a Linux box?
Did you check you have the correct version of the microsoft installer on your system?
I don't have a Linux box handy and don't want to use one. (Won't go into that here, don't want to start a flamewar.)
I have MSIExec.exe version 2.0.2600.1106 on my system, which is sufficient according to the system requirements.
It's an InstallShield error. Can you help us debug this problem - if so, the following link provides some clues/next steps
As installshield is handling this issue please keep us guys at the forum posted in what the error was, what it was causing and when and how it will be solved... Could be nice to know for people on the forum.
I've followed the instructions (looking for still-running install processes, clearing the temp directory, making sure I have a current Windows Installer) and none work.
However, in looking in the temp directory I found an OracleDatabaseExpressInstall.log file with the following contents. Does this provide any help?

Try upgrading your Windows Installer to version 3.0 or 3.1.
No joy, same error. And I had cleared out temp directories and made sure no installer processes were running as per the InstallShield page.
I neglected to mention that at all of these attempts the msiexec.exe process is left running.
Though the OracleDatabaseExpressInstall.log now shows the following:

Awaiting more clues, or perhaps a new installer... (I can dream, can't I? ;-)
Hmm, don't know how much this helps. http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/msi/setup/error_codes.asp
Error code 1620 is "This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package."

Yay, the latest beta installs OK!
Great - thanks for your perseverance
