Nope. I found the 2.0.1 installer on the adobe website and installed it. Flex Builder 3 still has the same problem. HELP!
Did you try all of the sanity checks? Enough disk space (with some to spare). Try a directory without spaces in it? Reboot? :)
Short of rebooting, yes. I tried selecting the root of the c drive. If the root of the c drive doesn't work...
I had no applications open and none of the servers on my system were running.
I've experienced the same problem, and it's my belief that it's down to errors in unpacking the installation files to a temp directory and the message is just unhelpful. I consistantly get it when trying to install from the install file stored on a fat32 usb stick, copying the file from there to the local drive does not help either. However, copying the file from from it's original download location via a network share to the local drive and running it from there did result in a success for me.
Totally unscientifically and unproven, I'd try avoiding fat filesystems, download or copy the installer to your local drive, and make sure you have *plenty* of spare space in your temp directory. I suspect somehow my file got corrupted slightly, but can't really tell, I've had similar problems before with recent adobe installers. a checksum would be handy, if you guys at adobe are reading!
Sorry I can't be more definitive, but hope that helps you. Bear in mind I may be wrong.
You know, it hadn't occurred to me that it could have been my download, and in that case, yes a checksum would have been good. I have had someone else recommend emptying my temp directory. Although I do have plenty of room in it, I will try the install after emptying it and rebooting tonight. I will post my findings later.
It could be that the installer checksum is failing, but all it outputs is "please select another location to extract the installer to:" whenever it fails (for whatever reason) ?
pure speculation, of course, but I've done far worse in my own installers ;)
I should mention that i also had cleared my temp directory inbetween failed and succesful install, in case it does have any bearing.
Were you ever able to install? Please let me know.
An Adobe employee handed me a burned copy of the installer with the same filename and that installer worked. I previously tried rebooting to clear the temp directory as suggested but that did not work.
It was clearly a bad download, so checksums would be very good and if there is an internal checksum that is failing, it should give a helpful error message. I will report my findings to Adobe so they can fix this problem, and anyone who has this problem should try downloading again.
