When I try to download the Xcode it went pretty good. But the error triggered when I tried to set up the xcode. The error states that ‘an error occurred while extracting files’, for me it seems there is no problem with the download. So tried to repeat the download process and reinstall again, but luck I got this error again. Please help. Your help is great.
The application could not be downloaded.
An error occurred while extracting files from the package “mzm.dsqyrssa.pkg”.
Xcode has encountered an error during setup
This is a pretty good trouble with XCode installation because it prevents users to use this awesome program though it has got nice performance.
The problem usually occurs while iTunes is running. Though you might have quit iTunes, but in the processes, iTunesHelper still runs.
What you have to do is just to kill the process from the Activity Manager.
Start Activity Manager and then kill the process “iTunesHelper”. Now continue with the installation.
Additionally, you can quit AppStore at the same time.
There is also another solution. If you try to install on Root Account, this error might occur. After you’ve downloaded, log out and login into another administrator account to prevent confliction. This page explains in details.
