Boinc x.x.x windows intelx86.exe is not a valid Win32 application

From BOINC Wiki

This message occurs when the download is incomplete or corrupt. A glitch along the way in the internet connection. It may seem as if everything of the file is there, but if you only miss a couple of bytes, it may seem that the download was completed correctly, when it wasn't.

It also happens when your temporary internet files directory is full.

So try these two simple steps:

  1. Delete your temporary internet files.
  2. Download the file again, if you have the chance save it to a different directory (folder or map) than you're used to.

(try right clicking on the link and doing a Save As.. that way you can specify what path to save to, not have it go automatically to your temporary internet files folder).
