SQL Server Denali: CTP3 Insallation Error "The Data is invalid"

After donwloding SQL Server Denali from here, I thought, itwill take only few mintues to install but unfortunatly it took 3 hours. I triedevery thing but every time error was same “Data is invalid”
To install SQL Server Denali CTP 3 (at 32bit machine) you must have
  1. Integrated_CT2776682.exe
  2. SQLFULL_x86_ENU_Core.box
  3. SQLFULL_x86_ENU_Install
  4. SQLFULL_x86_ENU_Lang.box
For x64 name of files is same, just replace x86 with x64.

I found that “Data is invalid” error occurs when you havenot downloaded “SQLFULL_x86_ENU_Core.box” properly. So I you are also facingsame error, repeat your download process for only “SQLFULL_x86_ENU_Core.box”and re-execute SQLFULL_x86_ENU_Install.exe.
