I hope somebody can help me with this issue as I'm completely clueless of what could be the problem...
I've integrated the AIR ApplicationUpdater into my app and doing update tests but they fail if I download the update for my app and then press "Install" so that the app exits and tries to install the update. there I get the following message:
Sorry, an error has occured.
The application could not be installed because the installer file is damaged. Try obtaining a new installer file from the application author.
If I postpone the update install until the app is restarted, all works fine. This happens on Windows 7 as well as on Mac OSX. And I tried it too with uninstalling both AIR and my app and re-install it all freshly but this didn't help.
Here's part of the install log I'm getting:

... Anyone have any clue what could be the source of the trouble? It's very important for me that this all works flawless.
I am having this same issue. Have you by chance found a reason for this?
