[Mono-list] Windows installer does not run

The executable does not run. When I attempt to run it, I receive the
"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not
have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
This is the second time I've seen this in a few days, so maybe it's a
problem on my side. The last time it was with the Mute installer
(http://mute-net.sourceforge.net/). In both cases, I downloaded using
wget from the Cygwin package. This has never let me down before, and my

I searched, but couldn't find MD5 sums for the Mono installer anywhere.
Here's the sum I calculated:

types of accounts: Administrators and Limited users. I'm using an
Administrator account, so I don't think permissions could be the problem.
Incidentally, the links for the Windows version of the beginner's guide
from this page are broken:
So if there is something unusual I have to do before installing, I
haven't been able to find out what it is. I've emailed the webmaster
about the broken links.
