tredeger: Are you aborting the installer (CTRL+ALT+DEL) when you think it’s hanging? How long are you waiting for before determining the installer froze? Normally the install, once it reaches the COM DLLs and SPDLs, does take a while but eventuaally the install does complete itself. Try waiting 5 to 10 minutes for it. I believe when I installed Foundation my 2.8GHz desktop took about 2-4 minutes after that point and my 1.6 GHz laptop took 5 or so minutes. Both are running XP Pro. Not sure if there is any bearing on it when using XP Home although Soft state they do not support Home.
MnFlojte: Are you using a download manager (i.e. Gozilla) to get the file? Softimage only support Download Accelerator. Try that. Even better is to not use one at all. File size when fully downloaded is 172078 KB so of course you’re getting a file corrupt message with a 114 MB file. Try right-clicking the file and choose “Save Target As…”, sometimes that seems to work better. Also, make sure the folder/drive you’re downloading to isn’t full or near capacity.
crgowo: Yep, this happened for me too a couple of nights ago. I sent Soft an email about it but an hour after sending the email the download page worked. Not sure if Soft actually fixed it or it fixed itself. Make sure your Soft Profile is completely & accurately filled out and submitted. Disable any download manager utility (see my response to MnFlojte above). Could be a simple case of too many people accessing at the same time. Keep trying and send Softimage an email about it. [EDIT] Just read that you were able to DL XSI, crgowo. Excellent stuff!
Whew! That’s it. Hope this all helps.
