Subject: current 1.4.1 download corrupt?

I've downloaded the file from your download section half a dozen times. It seems to be corrupt, though if it was you'd think there would be more people than me mentioning it. But I get the same behaviour all the time. Winzip wants to overwrite files at one point, which doesn't make sense when it's being unzipped into a blank directory. WinRar just reports it as corrupted. Anyone else having these problems? I've installed 1.3 many times without problems.

Thanks for such a great product, by the way.

Don't. Use. WinZip.

Seriously, I don't know why, but over all those years, people have consistently had problems unpacking the Geeklog tarballs with WinZip.

WinRar usually does the trick, though. Have you tried 7-Zip or a Linux box?

bye, Dirk

Never had trouble with a paid for copy of WinZip.

You might also try AllZip. It works well enough on my home machine.
