Downloads: I get an error message saying the file is corrupted.

Let me assure you that every resource we offer for download has been tested for file integrity. This means that every file stored at our web site is intact. When an error message reports that a file is "corrupt" it usually means one of the following:

  1. The file has somehow become corrupted during the download process. Solution? Try again--or try it using a different computer with a different connection to the Internet.
  2. You are using the wrong program to open the file on your computer. Solution? Use the correct program (see above).

We usually list the size of our larger files at our web site, so when the "corrupt file" error message occurs, the first thing to do is compare the size of the file you have just downloaded to the file size listed at our web site. If they are the same, then the file is not corrupted.
