W7 installer integrity check blocks 1.7.2 install


New Member
I tried to download EasyBCD v 1.7.2 with W7 RC and got a message about the software failing the installer's integrity check. Repeated downloads didn't solve the problem, so I downloaded v 1.7.1 and was able to install and use it. Problems I then encountered are described in a seperate posting on the support forum.

What are the differences between v 1.7.1 and 1.7.2?

How can I get 1.7.2?

Install integrity check isn't part of Windows 7 - I wrote that into EasyBCD, actually.

It checks to make sure that the EasyBCD setup file has been downloaded correctly. It looks like your ISP/network admin is caching a corrupt version.

We recommend using EasyBCD 2.0 (currently in beta) which can be downloaded from here: [thread]642[/thread]

Thanks. Installed and ran 2.0 without difficulty.

FWIW, the integrity checker blocked the install of 1.7.2 a dozen times over the past 3 days.

I appreciate the prompt response!
