I try to install Complete MiKTeX 2.9 But there is this:

Error: The operation could not be completed because the following file failed verification:


There is the same with the basic version.

How can I solve my problem?

It seems you have downloaded the files to your hard disk and trying to install from there. Some files are corrupted. Try downloading again. – Harish Kumar Nov 10 '13 at 1:54

Try with a different MiKTeX repository … (and it would be nice, if you'd change your user name to a more expressive one). – Speravir Nov 10 '13 at 3:34

Look up a different repository that lags behind a couple of days. Most of them have already copied the corrupted files (miktex-misc is also broken). The list of repositories has 188 entries, ftp.neowiz.com and elena.aut.ac.nz are the ones which have files dated older than 02-NOV-2013. The kiwi server worked for me.

all the mirrors on the list have version 09-NOV-2013. I guess my only option is to wait until this is fixed? – John Peter Thompson Garcés Nov 10 '13 at 20:11
