Question VM could not be uncompressed

Hi Guys!

I need some help for the below problem, trying to install a package and it throws up with this error any ideas to how to solve this problem.....

Preparing to install...
The included VM could not be uncompressed. Please try to download
the installer again and make sure that you download using 'binary'
mode. Please do not attempt to install this currently downloaded copy.

Thank you Guys in advance.

Well, since I don't know what package you're trying to install nor how you've tried installing it . . . about the only advice I can give is to try to download the installer again, but this time try downloading using binary mode. Oh! and don't try to install the package that you already downloaded.

Hope that clears things up for you ;-)
