Problem with Installing on Windows XP

Just downloaded version 0.8.3 on an Acer Aspire 1 (Windows XP) and I get a windows installer message: "This installer package could not be opened. Contact he application vendor to verify that this a is a valid Windows Installer Package".

I would appreciate suggestions on how to install Calibre on this computer; I'm at a loss at what to do.

Thanks


David

Standard answers (that usually cure the problem 90% of the time):
Don't use a download manager.
Disable your (overactive) Antivirus until installed.
