Error reading setup initialization file



Error reading setup initialization file can be caused by an incomplete download.


When you download an AIMMS version from our website and try to install AIMMS (by executing the setup.exe file), the following error message might occur:

        Error reading setup initialization file


The error normally occurs when the download is incomplete.


When the download is incomplete, try to download it again. You can verify whether the download was complete by comparing the total size of the file displayed when you start the download and the actual size of your setup.exe file. Incomplete downloads usually occur when downloading AIMMS over a slow Internet connection. You could try to use both the HTTP and the FTP link to download AIMMS from our website.
