Calibre Download

Just downloaded Calibre from CNET. Got error message saying "installation package could not be open, contact application vendor to verify this is a valid Windows installer package". Downloaded twice same message.

Any ideas -please?

Yes!
1) Download from the official Calibre site (the Word Calibre in the Top level Calibre) forum description is the link. All other sites tend to be outdated.

2)don't use a download manager.

3) disable your anti-virus for the download from official site only

IMHO it is way too subtle (and the Description embedded linking is a fairly common here at MR)
