Did you by any chance just double-click on the MSI file inside the ZIP
file? That would give this error.. You need to unzip the file to a
temporary directory sot hat both the MSI files are accessible at the
same time. (They may look so in Windows Explorer as it tries hard to
hide the fact that they're in a ZIP file, but they're not accessible to
each other)
