This seems to be a download problem. I got just 30MB and not 70MB. Solaris download is working.

After 12 times downloading I got it !!!! 350Mbytes just for nothing !!!!

Seems your keyboard is broken, especially the two keys '!' and '?'. And I just downloaded the .exe file one time and it was not corrupted.

I suggest integrating checksum into the installer...

Almost every time I see this the problem has been due to a download manager. If you are using one the next time try a standard http download with firefox of just about anything except IE which has been known to have problems with large downloads as well.

I try this 8 times with firefox, does not give any error message, just finish. Then I try this 4 time with wget, abort 3 times near the end. Then I was lucky the 4th time with wget.

Not by keyboard is broken, just my fingers !!!
