If I were you, I'd put this on "hold" for a few days and wait until
the update is posted to the FM support download site, and then try it
It sounds as if something may have gotten munged during the
download... possible that the installer itself is corrupted. So I'd
also delete the file that automatic download brought in.
You may want to see if Control Panel > Add/Update Programs lists the
update. I don't have an 8 install handy so I can't check it.
