could someone please tell me, what is causing the following message:

"The contents of this files cannot be unpacked. The executable
you are attempting to run has been corrupted, please obtain anothe copy of the file,
verify its integrity, and try again."

I decide to update my SDL Trados Version 2007, so I bought the update patch,
and after downloading it I got the aforementioned message.

I tried from to different computers, but the result was the same.

I´ll appreciate your help!

Try these... Jan 8, 2009

Hello Ramón,

It seems that your file has not downloaded properly. Please try the following to fix this error:

1. Delete your temporary internet files via Tools / Internet Options

2. Login to your online SDL account, go to My Downloads, select your download then select the "Alternative download via FTP" link.

3. Please check that your firewall or anti-virus software is not preventing the download process.

4. Also, please allow as a trusted site in Internet options, to do this please do the following:

1. Open Internet Explorer
2. Go to Tools / Internet Options
3. Select the Security Tab and then select the Trusted Sites Icon
4. Select the "Sites" button
5. Add to the list

I hope this helps.

Many Thanks,

Gareth Powell
