I am trying to install with installshield 11.5 on AIX and get the following message:  The size of the extaracted file to be installed are corrupt. Please attempt to download the Installer again making sure the file is transfered in binary mode.   I am installing off a CD and know the files are not corrupt.

Just a hint -

only the ISMP 11.5 Premier Edition is supported under AIX 5.3.

Use 'vi' to look at your setup.bin -
Any carriage-return (^M) in there? ISMP doesn't like that, obviously.
There is also a slight chance that your Java is not compatible/not found.

wmp,  Thanks for your hints.  I'm using the premier edition, and I'm not a great vi person but will give that a whir.  The Java should be fine, but I will check my Java levels and the level of my JVM that I'm using.  Thanks again... I'll let you know what I find.  craig

case closed,  64bit JVM were included and not needed.
