Trouble installing Windows AIK for Windows 7

By boardin4life85 ·
I am having trouble installing Windows AIK for Windows 7. Part way through the installation I get the error message "The cabinet file "" required for installation is corrupt and cannot be used.

I have tried re-downloading the file from Microsoft's site and re-burning the disc multiple times with the same result each time.

I have also run the sfc /scannow command which scans for and fixes any corrupted system files, but it did not find any.

I have even reloaded the system with a fresh install of Windows 7 and still receive the error.

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.

If you have any thoughts or ideas on how I can get Windows AIK to install that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Try re-installing W7 with the Repair option.

Does WAIK come in a 64-bit version? I'm only just getting my toes wet with it, and am using the 32-bit flavor on a Server 2003 system.

I have tried installing it on a couple different computers and get the same problem on them all.

The installation package comes with a 32 and 64 bit version.
