Problems unzipping file/"Path too long" error

If you are experiencing issues unzipping a zip file, follow these troubleshooting points:

Scenario 1: "Corrupt zip file" error

The Fix: Attempt to download the file again. It may be possible that your download did not complete 100%, causing the file to be corrupt and un-extractable.

Scenario 2: "The Filename/Path/Directory is too long"

The Fix: This is an issue for some Windows users. If you cannot extract a zip file and get that error message, a quick fix is to simply rename the zip file to something shorter. Once done, extract the file again. It should work this time.

If it still does not work, download a free program called 7-Zip:
