filemaker updater CRC failed in FMICD

fmpa installer on xp works ok.
fmpa_updater_10.0.3.303.exe gives the following errors:
!   F:\fmpa_updater_10.0.3.303.exe: CRC failed in FMICD\Files\Bonjour\32-bit\BonjourSetup.exe. The file is corrupt
!   F:\fmpa_updater_10.0.3.303.exe: CRC failed in FMICD\Files\ The file is corrupt

what i tried:
- expanding with winrar gives the same result as auto-expand by dubble-clicking.
- expanding in safe-mode to avoid conflicts results in the same errors.
- downloading a new copy from results in the same errors.

what's strange is that these installers worked fine a couple of days ago on another fresh xp install.  since the sequence of installations is different (previously i installed fmpa quickly after windows, today i install fmpa after a number of other installations) i suspect some conflict ?

    when decompressing files in FMICD, the fm installer never cleans the folder first; so if there is a previous install in it, you may have weird things. happened to me when installing a server and client on the same machine. so may be worth to try to delete the FMICD folder to start with.
