This file is 100 MegaBytes! That is a pretty large file. Do you have a fast connection? I was able to download the following file:

from the following link: (I am not sure if this link will directly connect you)

Make sure that this is the same file that you attempted to download.

You might try from a different computer, and save to a zip drive, then plug in to your laptop, and try to install that way. Good luck!
