I have downloaded both the .msi and .exe versions for windows from this site:

 

http://7-zip.org/

 

In both cases there are different reason they will not work. 

 

with the first file, Windows said this:

 

"This package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows installer package."

 

With the second file, it said "Error"

 

Any suggestions appreciated.

Are you sure that you went to the current site? I do not see any .msi listed where I just looked.

Download 7 Zip was the site that I came up with and it has the current 2015 version for 64bit at the top.

 

The link you left had 2010 versions listed which are outdated.



Acer Computer with LG Monitor and Toshiba Laptop with Windows 7.1

Windows 64bit  8.1 - Always fully updated

the .msi file was a beta for windows that just came out. 

 

I went to your link and downloaded the file and it ran.  This is a relief because a lot of my downloads are getting the message that they are not win32 applications even though they are. 

 

thanks for your help. 

 

I guess we can call this thread RESOLVED.
