@juancppl, please post a screenshot of the downloaded files with file sizes visible like Vøytek asked. It should look something like this:

I only downloaded parts 1 and 2, but the 2 downloaded correctly and the part 1 shows me this message.

You need to download all 7 parts. It is a multi-part 7zip archive, you cannot open/extract the archive using less than all 7 files.

This is blatant click farming!

15 to 20 clicks go to some ads that never initialize the download. Only the random AdFly actually let's you download any of the 7 archives, each of which seems to have only a 10% chance of not being corrupted, and only after you've spent a couple hours trying to download all seven, and good luck figuring out which of them are corrupted. Then you literally have to download them all over again, taking another several hours! It's nearly 4pm and I've spent the last 4 hours trying to get this downloaded only to have to start over from scratch not having any idea which of the seven files are corrupted!

Oh and don't tell me to use the "File Testing Tool" because THAT is corrupted as well... no matter how many times I download this tiny file, it is always corrupted. I guess they don't want us knowing which of the archives files they intentionally broke in order to force us to click more ads.

Do a Patreon if you guys need money but this blatant click farming and broken archive crap shoot is some strait up BS!

Your browser's MIME settings are incorrect, so try it with a different browser (it's usually easier than fixing these settings)

It's two clicks to get to the download links.

In 9 out of 10 cases when an archive appears corrupt it's actually not but the sequence of files is incomplete.
It's either that or you're not using the latest version of 7zip.

The file tester is provided for exactly that purpose.

It shouldn't be, I reckon you are using outdated archiving software.
Either that or maybe your Wifi/data connection is unstable.

Paid links and voluntary Paypal donations serve this purpose.
