I am trying to download version magento on windows 8, but it wont unzip, it displays a message like "windows cannot open the folder". the compressed (zipped) folder 'C:\Users\personal\downloads\magento-' is invalid". on the Magento website the filesize is 32.72 MB whereas when the download apparently is 'done' the zipped file at hand is only 4985kb (4.86 Mb).

I would really appreciate if somebody would help me with this, thanks

There's dozens of places to download Magento from if you are struggling to get it from the official sources.

Eg. We have a full repo on GitHub, https://github.com/sonassi/magento-ce/tree/

You can download a zip directly here, https://github.com/sonassi/magento-ce/archive/

And the sample data here, https://github.com/sonassi/magento-sample-data/tree/

  • thank you for the suggestion, will surely try and see, thanks – david Nov 24 '14 at 1:28
