I downloaded the OpenStudio-2.5.0 Windows installer. When double clicking to start the installation, the install script fails during pat installation with an error :7z not enough memory. I redid the install twice, same results.

Then I used right click, run as Administrator and the installation was successful.

I have lots of hard drive space, and 7.88 GB usable RAM. Paging file size is 8072 MB. So no actual question but a report.

@CR Jones, may be worth getting a fresh download of 2.5.0 in case that download was corrupted, or you can try 2.5.1 which is available now. You might also try a fresh restart of your machine and install without any other applications running. That shouldn't generally be necessary, but might be wroth a try of there is an issue with enough RAM. Just out of interest, have you been able to install earlier versions of OpenStudio on this specific machine?
