Silent Installation Fails: “State File is Incompatible or Corrupted”

If you are using a state file that was created on the same platform on which you are using it, the problem might be due to an unknown file corruption error. There are two approaches to troubleshooting this issue.

Generate a New State File

Create a New Platform-Appropriate ID

If the platform on which you created the state file is not the same as the platform on which you are running the silent installation, create a new, platform-appropriate ID for the file. For instructions on how to do this, refer to Creating a Platform-Appropriate State File ID.
