My friend told me they had to download this file over and over, because they keep getting errors when they attempted to unzip it.  They said it took them four attempts but that windows default “extract all” kept encountering “unspecified errors” so I tried as well.

I’m on my 6th download attempt and still no luck for me yet. I ran an MD5 checksum on each zip and getting different results each time. Just thought someone at DAZ would like to be made aware of the issue, you must be losing lots of potential customers this way!

I’m not sure what the problem is, but then I’ve never tried using the default Windows 7 “extract all”.  I always use a 3rd-party extractor, on my new computer, PowerArchiver (, though I have used 7zip ( and WinZip, which should not be confused with the built-in Windows extractor (, to extract the contents of zip files not matter where I download them.  Just be aware that 7zip is the only one of those that is free.  The other 2 are only free to try.

I have the exact same issue with some of the downloads. The 7-zip extractor (free) always seems to work.
