    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Even if it gives you that error, the ISO image WILL still mount - Check the CD drives for the Mounted Disk.

    You should not get this error clicking on an HTML Link, try using a different browser.

    Should have mentioned: It's a trial I'm trying to d/l

    Still getting the same problem though:
    sorry, there was a problem mounting the file

    When changing extension to exe:
    The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.

    Have tried d/l both 64 and 32-bit versions.

    Please advise further.
