CW 10.3 install - Error decompressing data! Corrupted installer?

I'm attempting to install CW 10.3 to a windows XP SP2 machine with no luck.

Trying both the offline and online installer.

It will get to a certain point and give me the error:  Error decompressing data! Corrupted installer?

Usually it's when extracting but sometimes another file.  NOTE: that is with the online installer (after it downloads stuff and starts unpacking).

With the offline installer it gets part of the way and then I get (always) this error (pop-up):  7-Zip: Data error.

I have plenty of disk space, my C drive is NTFS, system is normal otherwise.

I tried also installing on a windows XP SP2 partition using Parallels 7 on the mac, and get the same kind of error!

The installer doesn't leave any hints in the system Event Viewer, not sure how to debug it.
