The download component does not work for me

Hi there,

after upgrading to 1.7 trunk version, my download components do not seem to work anymore. If the file to start is not found, the download dialog should appear. Instead, I get the following error:

The installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows installer package.

I would have attached the log file, but mysteriously it was not created.

My bad. Fixed in 1.7.26074.0. Fyi, the execution engine still needs a large code change to make it unit-testable, so that we don't get regressions like this. I am probably going to do it some time next week.

Great, it works again. Regression testing is indeed really important. On some previous projects the lack of it caused many errors that were noticed pretty late.
