Unable to "unzip" the file


New member
Whenever I go to unzip the file with 7zip, I always get the same error, "Can not open file as archive."
I am using 1.3, the latest version.

I assume you are talking about the xenforo installation package....? Try downloading it again.
I already redownloaded it, yet it still gave me the same error. Also, yes, I am talking about the installation package. I also tried 1.1 and still got the same error.

Reassociate the zip with your operating systems internal unzipper, or use "open with" by right-clicking on the file and open it with Windows Explorer. Something with the program you are using to unzip the file must be flakey.

I redownloaded 7zip because I thought it was the source of the problem. However, when I went to extract the files from the zipped installation file, I got this error:
" The compressed (zipped) folder is empty. Before you can extract files, you must copy files to this compressed (zipped) folder."
