While trying to install the Ubuntu One client on Windows 7, every time I try to sign in, it replies with this error. In details, it says:

bad local file header in C:\Program Files (x86)\ubuntuone\dist\

Does anybody know what's going on, or perhaps how to fix it?

This looks like a bug. See comment #14 for possible fix: "Renamed the folder C:\Users\<UserID>\AppData\Local\xdg and started Ubuntu One from the shortcut. It started working. A nex(sic) folder is created in the same directory"
