If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

(yeah - I'm repeating stuff, but there's a good chance that the upload will fail due to being oversized, and the error message isn't obvious!)

Apologies for the delay in responding. The issue seems to have rectified itself. I installed while the PC was on and they installed fine. Thanks for the heads up on what to do if it does happen again.
