Exclamation Alice 2.2 does'nt download and install correctly - 09-21-2010, 07:42 PM

Okay, this is getting me VERY frustrated. No matter HOW many times I download and install Alice it still doesn't work. It keeps saying this:

This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Can someone please help me!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

I need this for school, and it is getting pretty annoying, having to cram as much as I can at school before going home and seeing it fail. I really need help.

To get useful help you will need to be very specific:

Which platform are you on? One would presume Windows, but if so, what version?

Where did you download it from, and using what? Nobody
really uses FTP anymore, but it had a text and a binary mode, and that could result in corruption.

Is the file the right size once you have downloaded it?
There are more stringent tests for file integrity, but they
are rather technical.

Have you installed over the top of a previous version, or did
you do an uninstall first? If so, how did you do the uninstall?

Do you have administrative rights on the machine so you
can install software?

-I am using windows XP.
-And since Alice doesn't "install" like other programs I just deleted all of its files. -And I download Alice 2.2. from Alice's direct Windows link. Not from the mirror. -And I tried it on the administrator account too. No dice.

Oh and I uh lost the teachers copy and paste thing............

This might help, when I downloaded Alice before I reinstalled Windows XP it worked great.

JUST TO ADD: The download size is 267 MB (Both on mirror and on site).

Reboot your computer. If that doesn't work in class I will share you the files.
