WinZip- Error in the archive file! ErrorCode : 0x00040716

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello Guys here especially who are using WinZip.

I am not a Winzip user so I don’t know why this error appeared when trying to extract a file which was sent by my friend to my email.

Is there someone who knows what this error all about?

And how can I get the file without this error?

Thanks in advance.

That error could be as a result of several problems, and I will list those possibilities for you.

  • The file that you may be trying to extract may be located with other many folders in the same archive, and therefore that file is so big thus making winzip have problems extracting it. if that is the case, then you will need to get to your friend and tell them to archive the file alone and send it back to you.
  • The problem might also be as a result of the winzip program being corrupt, and therefore as fix to that, you will need to install the program again. You can download the winzip application from the internet, so just get a good copy and install it on your system and work with it.
