# Why I can't install blender 2.78 x64?

Error installing blender 2.78 x64 on windows 10 x64, it says "The cabinet file media1.cab required for this installation is corrupt and cannot be used."

• There is a bug in the 2.78 release installer currently, the devs mention it will be fixed for 2.78a. See blendernation.com/2016/10/09/… Oct 10, 2016 at 5:00
• @aliasguru they should not post the download link there, it's a waste of time Oct 10, 2016 at 5:31
• @aliasguru what version should I download? Oct 10, 2016 at 5:31
• Download the zip archive instead, simply unzip it, run blender.exe from that. In a few days they plan to do the a release. This was a bug very hard to spot, so it is understandable they missed it. Oct 10, 2016 at 5:35
• @aliasguru even the zip is corrupted Oct 10, 2016 at 9:28
