I have tried to download an application that uses Abode AIR.  I always receive the same error message "Sorry, an error has occurred. The application could not be installed because the installer file is damaged.  Try obtaining a new installer file from the application author."  I have installed, uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe AIR and keep getting the same error message.  Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Will Adobe release updated versions of the AIR installers that came with Creative Suite 6?  I can't install AdobeHelp.air or WidgetBrowser.air using the files that were created by AAMEE 3.1 without changing the date of the computer.

I had the same issue of receiving the "installer file is damaged" issue. Using Windows XP, I simply changed the date on Windows to a date prior to Oct. 30, 2017, reset the computer, then installed the software (as administrator) and it installed successfully.
