Hi there,

everytime I download the InstallManager package for Windows x64 of RRDI 2.0.3 this package seems to be corrupt. When trying to extract this or to open this package I receive the following error message:

Any idea? Is it possible that this zip container is corrupt at

I tried it two times and both of them where corrupt.

Hello Simon,

in addition to what Krzysztof mentioned, if you find that also with 7zip the file is corrupted, you can try downloading it with Firefox or even better with a download manager utility.
Some browsers have issues while downloading large files.

Hi Francesco,

I downloaded using FireFox before.
I now used a Download Manager and the zip I received is much bigger (arnd 2GB more in size). The result It's working now.

So downloading without download manager did not work even when firefox said "download completed successfully".

Thanks & Greetings,

Just in addition what you both said:
When extracting the zip file with the windows internal zip tool I get this message within IM

Using a different zip tool (I did it with Power Archiver) everything works fine ...

It's interesting that the windows internal zip tool is much worse than other tools.

Hi Simon,
what is the tool you are trying to open the archive? Are you using standard windows archiver tool? Try e.g. 7zip which is far better than windows tool.

Let us know if it helped for you.
