Alice2.2 zip file trouble
Hi, I have downloaded the alice2.2 zip file and have found it impossible to open and extract. I am using windows 7 and have tried extracting it with both windows and 7zip but neither of them can open it. They say the file is corrupt. I have tried downloading it several times with the same result. I downloaded the alice2.0 zip file from google and that actually worked fine on the same computer.

Any ideas?

are you sure you're using the official download? Please go to and select get alice 2.2 from the menu there. Other sites can't be trusted. :)

Alice 2.2 Download
Hi Thanks for the reply. Yes I did download it off the website don't know what the problem is as the 2.0 version worked fine.

A corrupt file means that data was improperly handled during the download. Perhaps your internet connection disconnected during the download, causing you to only get a part of the file, yet the file still thinks it's complete. That has actually happened to me several times.
The fix is to—you should have guessed it—download it again.
