I get exactly the same problem only mine gets to 68% scene 6, if I SKIP that scene it tries to extract scene 7 but I get error code 0x80004005

I have searched high and low, have a new install of windows 10 up to date, have done an "SFC/scannow" under cmd administrator , no problem found, I have NO other programs on the computer except anti Virus/Google/ and Nvidia control panel and I have set the 3d section to the highest level. I have an i7-8700k / rtx2070 / 32 gb ddr4 3000 ram and 1x500 gb ssd and 1xTB ssd

I have tried downloading in both Google and Internet explorer, same result from both downloads.

I CANNOT even EXTRACT the zipped file. HELP PLEASE. I never had this problem with P3D v4.5.. Have I just wasted my money ??

I have just tried again using WinZip and following is the log file of that failed attempt:-

Try to re-download the files, but use a download manager.

What kind of internet connection are you using that makes it an 8 hour download?

Did you have virus checker OFF during download?

After downloading the ZIP file did you verify the Zip files Checksum?

I fell asleep while it was downloading but it was quite a bit of time.
Anyway how do I verify the zip file ? and why would 3 downloads produce the same error code on all 3 downloads and also when I try to extract the same downloaded file on another working fine computer ?
