I am trying to install ruby on my XP machine, but I get the error
“The installer you are trying to use is corrupted or incomplete”
Then almost certainly the file is corrupted or incomplete, just as it
If you downloaded it via FTP, did you remember to use binary mode? If
you downloaded it via HTTP, did you right-click to save to a file?
To be sure, get a cryptographic hash (e.g. sha1 or md5) from the file on
this machine, and compare it to the hash of the file on the other
machine. If the hashes are different, the two files are definitely
different. Also, many download sites publish the sha1 or md5 of the file
you’re downloading, so you can compare to that too.
I don’t use Windows so I don’t know what utility you’d need to install
to get an sha1 or md5, but I’m sure there must be plenty around.
