The problem might be that  (withWindows) the Revolution installation
file and the installed Revolution engine both are named

You run into this problem if you create a folder, put the downloaded
Revolution file into that folder, and then install Revolution into that
same folder. Leave the installation file outside your final Revolution
folder and install from there.
