Check your directory premissions:
'help' > 'System info' > 'Directory Permissions'
All least these folders should be writeable:

  • administrator/components/
  • administrator/language/en-GB/
  • components/
  • tmp/

You can also enable the FTP layer and try to install again.

Error: 'Path does not point to a valid folder' 'Could not find a Joomla! XML setup file' 'File...does not exist'

You are probably dealing with a corrupt download. Both Symantec and McAfee are known to corrupt downloads with certain settings. They can also corrupt the extensions send and received by email. So try this: go to the download area, disable the firewall/virusscanner, download the file, enable the firewall/virusscanner.
