    Is there a way to solve the problem listed below, as I get this error message when I try to install WAU.

    From http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms229001.aspx

    *****************
    Error message: "Application is improperly formatted;" Log file contains "XML signature is invalid"

    Ensure that you updated the manifest file and signed it again. Republish your application by using Visual Studio or use Mage to sign the application again.
    *****************

    Thx in advance.

    I have the exact same problem as scibat in Reply #46. I run Vista Ultimate 64-bit and I've tried updating all the way up til .Net Framework 3.5 beta and I get the "Cannot continue. The application is improperly formatted. Contact the application vendor for assistance." -message. And when I click details, I get this:
