Hi, I have downloaded the game but when I try and run it I get a message saying that Windows cannot open the folder and that it is invalid.

can anyone tell me where I'm going wrong?

Thanks

Pew

downloading large files through a web browser can result in screwed up files you can either try again on a more reliable internet connection make sure you computer doesn't go to sleep and cross your fingers, find a non web-browser way to download it, or use the torrent from the gamershell mirror(what i used).

also 7zip maybe worth a look if windows just doesn't like your zip file

Hello Pewliss and welcome on board :)

Another way is our "WCS Setup ZIP Check & UnZip" tool, see link in my sig. It is suitable for the big Zip Archive. The tool can both: checking the zip archive with MD5 and unpacking if the check was successfully.

It's on the german forum. But simply download the first attachment. The tool has english requesters, so it's easy to understand.

Hi Luke, Thanks for the suggestion I'll try it out. I think I'll have to download the game again fist as well. I've not used ZIP files before so its all a bit new too me.

Cheers

It's easy. After you downloaded the big WCS Zip, unzip the Zip Check & Unzip tool into your download folder and start it. The tool will do the rest.

Unziping the tool works on XP and above, also on Vista, 7 and 8. Only the WCS Zip can be a problem and exactly for that was the tool created.

I'm not sure about all the download sites and how they are handling the files for downloading; however, I have found if I can't get a file to download correctly using Internet Explorer, it will usually work using Firefox...that's about the only thing I use Firefox for. And as mentioned earlier, 7-Zip is a great tool for unzipping files.
