BOINC Installer: Error reading setup initialization file

From BOINC Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

It can happen that when you have downloaded the installer file and try to run it, that you get the error Error reading setup initialization file.

This is caused by the BOINC installer not being able to unpack its temporary files in your Temporary Internet files folder. So clean this folder out, delete as much as possible there. Also delete the BOINC installer file.

Then download it again from the BOINC website and start the installation. You'll find it will now install without problems.
