Forwarder Win7 install package damaged?

New Member

When I try to install the v4.3.3 x86 Splunk Universal Forwarder it throws an error.
A Windows Installer reports the error:
"This installation package could not be opened."
Has your download file become corrupted?

Looks OK to me:

$ cat splunkforwarder-4.3.3-128297-x86-release.msi.md5 
$ md5sum splunkforwarder-4.3.3-128297-x86-release.msi
86353f3acf1ee9230ebdfc026ee80821  splunkforwarder-4.3.3-128297-x86-release.msi

Perhaps you have an intermediate proxy that messes up things one way or another.

The checksum does not agree with the published MD5 sum.
Thus, it is corrupted. Please post a proper msi file for the forwarder.
Thank you!
