Default !!!WinZip File Question...PLEASE HELP!!! Really Want to get this GOING!!!

Downloaded Age of Empires II game for the PC. Its a .ZIP file, but when I open the file to unzip it a message pops up saying..."Expected ZIP File Header Not Found." What do I need to do???? Im using WinZip. What could possibly be wrong with the file??? It looks like every thing else I have unzipped. Heres the file " C:\Program Files\LimeWire\Age of Empires.zip " Im almost certain the file is good. Not to mention its a 227MB file.

Firstly, dont make two threads about one topic, just wait for the other to be replied to. http://www.computerforums.org/showthread.php?t=39231

Secondly, downloading games is illegal

Use Winrar or something. It's more likely the game is corrupt, full of virus's, and is filling your hard drive up second by second with nice bugs.

Maybe he downloaded the demo from Microsoft joxley? That isn't illegal...

then again, if he did that it would probably be .exe, but whatever.

Computer_tech...the file is probably corrupted. Either re download it, or just go buy the game.

A typical AOE game is ~510MB.
