This occurs when the device is running an antivirus program and the antivirus program renames the file. If this happens on your device, follow these steps:

  • Find the file that was downloaded on your device
  • Rename the file, it needs to end in .pkg if downloaded on Mac and .exe if downloaded on Windows
  • You can rename a file by right-clicking on the file and selecting rename
  • Once it is renamed double click on the file to launch the app and it should install properly
