Yes That message actually means that the system cannot find the BIN file, not that it is invalid. Why Sling didn't use an error message along the lines of "Cannot find the BIN file" is beyond me. You say you have put it in the root folder so you should be typing C:\V2010_PL.BIN. Yes ?
Here it is installing perfectly on mine
Thanks for your suggestion.
Yes, I did exactly the way you described.
Also tried to put it in the .... \SBAV folder. (it didn't exsist so I created it and put the file there) No change.
Have also tried to place the files on an USB stick, just to test if program needed admin rights to access the root.
Got same result :-(
Have also tried to turn my antivirus firewall off (Norton).
I can see from your screen copy is different from mine, I am using Slingplayer v.2.0.191 (latest). An issue?
My Laptop runs windows 7.
Any more suggestions?
