This exact same issue is happening for me with the Visual Studio 2010 CTP in December 2008. The symptoms are identical to the one reported in this issue. I have downloaded the individual parts from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=922B4655-93D0-4476-BDA4-94CF5F8D4814&displaylang=en#filelist four times now and every time, I get the exact same set of errors:

Some installation files are corrupt.
Please download a fresh copy and retry the installation.

Thanks for all your help. Finally, I have decided not to install Orcas on my machine. Today was my last date to provide evaluation report on Orscas for our big prospective project. But Since I am not getting sufficient support in installation, how can I recommend this for use.
Really helpless.
Thanks anyway.

Dear Sir,
I have followed all the steps mentioned by you.
I have all 8 files which you are showing downloaded. I have extracted files as per your comments and I am getting error while extracting. I have attached error I am getting.
I would like to request you to upload extracted Cab18.cab and Cab20.cab files which may help me.

Hi

We can't repro the issue following the steps provide.
Attach the snapshots for each step. According to the snapshot, you need to download another OrcasBeta1_VSPRO_SelfExtractedDVD_8partsTotal.part7 which contain cab18.cab and cab20.cab.

Thanks,
Kylin

If problem is not reproducible and things are working fine at your end, Can you please upload atleast Cab18.cab and Cab20.cab files which are not getting extracted at our end.

I have tried this 3-4 times and I am able to reproduce it every time. Please let me know if somebody can help me. Otherwise I may have to scrap idea of installing this.

I have downloaded required files again. But, I am again getting same problem. It's consistently reproducible at our end atleast.
I am loosing interest now if somebody doesn't help.

Thanks for your feedback, we were unable to repro the bug with the steps provided on Visual Studio Codename Orcas Beta1 (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=5D9C6B2D-439C-4EC2-8E24-B7D9FF6A2AB2&displaylang=en). If you still see this issue occurring we would like to investigate this issue again.

Thank you,
Visual Studio Product Team.

I just saw this issue in VS2010 Beta 1, and found a work around on Heath Stewart's Blog. If you copy the file images local (rather than installing directly from the DVD), everything seems to install just fine.

Given this work around, the problem is most likely some form of odd race condition, so it's not suprising that some would see it, and some would not. In my case, I was installing to a virtual machine (using Virtual Server 2005 R2) with Windows 7.
