Hi there,

Now i have tried to download the three file-archives from your webpage several times (4). Every time i try to extract the archives, it says that the file is corrput. When i use a MD5 checker i can also see that the hash sum dosent add up.

What do i do? Is there an alternative download page, a fix for this or?

Are you using a download manager or browser to obtain the files? With the listed file sizes I would recommend a download manager.

I've just purchased P3D the other night and had exactly the same issue, all zip files opened ok in Winrar though the first one didnt show the entire contents, though did still show some data.cabs. I was about to redownload (hated the thought) but then remembered I used to get the odd issue so right clicked the zip and chose to open it with Windows Explorer, it opened fine and I could then extract the contents, worked for all 3 zip files then copied them into the same folder as mentioned in the installation notes
