Cool PT8 UPGRADE Corrupt download file??

Hi All, I have bought my PT8HD upgrade and have downloaded it twice. The whole download arrives and both times the CAB2 file has been corrupt and reports so when I start the installation.

Anyone else had this issue?

I am trying a third download which is painful as it takes a good 15 hours...

Any help appreciated.

Big D

What's your browser or download manager?

I had this problem with google chrome, and then used firefox and the java d/l manager that digi has and it worked

Hi Ryan,

Are you using WinZip to extract the files? I've seen problems with older versions on WinRAR...

Hi BIG D,

I think I know what the problem is, cause I just fixed it on my system.

Its the compression file that you have downloaded- its been driving me NUTS!

Try downloading the latest version of WINZIP and install it.

Then open the compressed PT8 folder with WINZIP.
Go to the setup.exe file double click - you will get an error message!
Then select Actions from the top menu followed by Check Out...
This will convert the file and you can then re-run the setup.exe file.

I think its a problem with the PT8 download and VISTA Home/Premium.

Hope that helps, any probs give me a shout.

Postkill
