[plt-scheme] SOLVED: Installation problem of PLT scheme v201 with win2000 + SP3

I downloaded the single installation file again and now it worked.
What puzzles me is that the newly downloaded file had same size
(bytewise) as the previous one. Since I removed Activestate's Perl
and Tcl before reinstalling we may never know what was the problem.

Thanks anyways
