    I'm trying to install an MSI-file and get the error message "Error reading from file. (Then location of file) Verify that the file exists and that you can access it." How do I fix this? Thanks.

    Hello, an .msi is a windows installer package and there is usually an error number when something like this goes wrong. It would also help if you provided the path to the 'missing' file and the location of the original .msi.

    This is the full information I get in the popup:

    Error reading from file: C:\User\myname\AppData\Local\Temp1_Minsky.1.D33-win.dat.zip\Minsky.1.D33-win-dist\Minsky\Tktable211.dll. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.

    I have the file in my Downloads folder.

    Thanks,
