Installing Inspector XE Command line interface component...ERROR: Package is corrupted. Installation cannot continue.

This error message is not due to a corrupt install package. The installer prints this error message because it can't access one of its packages and hence the installer thinks the package is corrupt. Please avoid using special characters such as "--" in the directory names where the install package is unpacked.
