Trouble installing PSoC Creator - "Error: Unable to connect to update server"

Question: On trying to download the PSoC Creator, I get the error "An error occurred while trying to download MSL: Unable to connect to update server"  What is the reason for this error and what is the solution?

 

Answer:

This error is seen on an unstable internet connection.  Instead of installing PSoC Creator online, download the ISO image from the PSoC Creator web page, burn the ISO image to a CD and install from the CD.
