When you look at that folder using File Explorer: desktop\downloads\ check if the file is really there, right click, select properties, look at the General Tab, size should be 210KB.

have a look at this page:
https://www.fonepaw.com/windows/windows ... olved.html

Under Causes, these 2 seem most likely:
-The file has been deleted or move to other location. Or the file or its shorcut is corrupt.
-The file may be blocked by Windows. Or it is blocked by the anti-virus software of your computer.
Martin,
All of those scenarios have been checked (all good...not the cause/still no change). Other files in the same folder install without issue. Anyway, I think I may be having a procedural problem. What does the new installer need and look for? Does it need to access the Internet to get my purchase/account info and the new updated files or is it looking for the files somewhere on my PC...should I have downloaded them before running the new installer? Thanks again for your attention; your help appreciated.

The Installer needs to connect to the Internet, specifically https://www.flytampa.org in order to see what the latest version is and download it.

If it fails to connect you should be given 2 message boxes, the first saying unable to connect to https://www.flytampa.org with an error code marked red in screenshot below. Then a second message box with connectivity tests performed to 3 large servers, each showing an error code as well.

In my screenshot the error code is "OK" because there was no error.
