Unable to unarchieve using Archive Utility


Seems like you have a corrupted ZIP file. You probably want to try an alternative unZIPper to see if it works. Or probably Zipeg because it's free.

Alternatively you can use StuffIt. You should have StuffIt expander somewhere on your hard drive, probably in the Utilities folder of your Applications folder. Here is the StuffIt download page.

Good luck,
