Celestia-1.5.1-ED: download problems

Post #1by carlopacca » 10.09.2009, 07:54

Hello,

I tried several times to download the file

CED-151-WIN_setup.zip

from

http://www.celestiamotherlode.net/catalog/educational.php

but I had some problem in "finalizing" the last downloaded bytes. It seemed to close correctly the download but when I open the zip file it says "bad zip header found" and when I try to run the extracted EXE it says "setup files are corrupted".

Do you have some suggestions ?

Thanks

Carlo

Carlo,

After reading your post here, I went to the site and downloaded the main package (489 MB)
from the Motherlode with absolutely *no* problems. The file extracted correctly, and the
program itself executed as it should.

All I can tell you to check your download program and your net connections, and make
certain that your unzip program works correctly.

Sorry, but it worked absolutely fine for me. :wink:
You might try using the unzipping utility Izarc. Can be found HERE.
Thanks, Brain-Dead

Thanks for your reply,

the problem was on the Internet connection: I changed it and I successfully downloaded it.

thanks
