Windows Installer / Integrity Check Failing



I am new to PBC and even newer to KiCad.

I just downloaded kicad-5.0.2_1-x86_64.exe and am trying to install it. I am receiving an error “Installer integrity check has failed. Common causes include incomplete download and damaged media. Contact the installer’s auther to obtain a new copy. More information at: http:/”

Before getting this error I also get a warning “Publisher Unknown.”

Steps I have taken to resolve:

-Redownloaded multiple times with same result.
-Ran as administrator.

I am running Windows 10 Pro / Version 1809 / OS Build 17763.195

Any help would be appreciated. (And if I am posting this in the wrong location please let me know.)


My Windows 10 Explorer shows a file size of 1,092,377 KB

KiCAD v5.0.2 - installer integrity check fail?

Thank you for the reply. Knowing the file size enabled me to see that I was not getting the entire file. I was having a heck of a time downloading the file yesterday. Every attempt took nearly an hour. I tried several times.

Not sure what the problem was, but today it took less than 3 minutes to download and it is installing like a charm.


ISP problems maybe or a hiccup at the KiCad server.


@davidsrsb My file size is exactly the same but cant install it
All the time it says integrity check has failed :pensive:


@Sara what is the exact download link you are using?


It was solved I downloaded by my phone (android) not pc and then transfer to my pc and could install kicad 5
