iGuidance 2011 error: There's not enough space on drive C to extract this package

Hello all. I just downloaded the 2011 version of iGuidance yesterday from INAV. When trying to install, I get the following error below. Note the disk space available on the left. Has anyone else ever had this problem?

What the problem is I'm not sure but there is an easy solution. Unzip the downloaded file and it will give you 3 folders. Disk 1, disk 2 and disk 3. Run the setup.exe file in the disk 1 folder.

That seemed to work. Thank you!

I'm glad it worked for you. It took me about 2 hours to figure it out when I had the same problem on a computer with over 30G free. Probably something to do with the extraction routine they use.

Most file extractors will not use the full amount of free space on a hard drive, especially if it is the system drive. They will check free space and subtract some arbitrary amount, or percentage, that they will always leave free. If the remaining amount is sufficient they'll extract. Otherwise they'll pop an error.

They will also include the amount required for installation in the calculation. During the installation process you need space for both the extracted files and the full installation.

I just tried to take a look at my 2011.zip file to see what the uncompressed size would be and I get an error that the zip file can't be opened. Checked the backup drive and it's buggered, too. So I hope I don't need to reinstall.

The first computer I tried it on had 111G free and it complained the first time I tried but ran ok after a restart. I could tell you the size but can't remember what part was the download and what was the unzipped result! Around 2.4G I think.
