When I go to www.vacc-sag.org I am able to bring up the web page and thence when I go to the charts link I can get the link for charts for all German Airports.


I do log in with my valid ID and p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word


My problem is this--When I pick ANY , repeat ANY airport and try to download the complete ZIP file this airport ---I can do this--- and I have the ZIP FILE on my computer.....However , when I try to open the ZIP file I receive this error message;




Of course I cannot open the ZIP file


I have a valid copy of WINZIP and have downloaded many files on other sites using WINZIP. I have WINZIP 14



Is there somthing wrong with all ZIP files on the site ???


Any help here is appreciated

Hi Robert,


that is strange. I just randomly picked the All In One package of "Friedrichshafen EDNY" and the ZIP and its content worked perfectly for me.


What browser did you use to download the ZIP-files? I have heard from other users that they downloaded a ZIP (not one of our chart-files) and they had the same issue. After downloading it on another computer and copying it to their current one, it worked! Strange!!

I recently went to IE8 and Previously I had IE7.


I did download some ZIP Files from the site previously when I had IE7 and I guess because now that I have IE8 the site "does not like me"????


I am saving the file now when I download it , and when I try to open it I get the error message. Even when I do not save it, but try to open it , it still gives me a error message


I am using XP


As I mentioned, I have downloaded ZIP files now ( with IE8) from other sites and I am able to open these files


I hesitate using RAR files because I am not comfortable with it and would rather use ZIP


Thanks for your input

I had some trouble with my default Zip Utility in XP quite some time ago. Everytime I would download a scenery my utility kept telling me the download was p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word protected. Several emails to the authors confirmed they were indeed not protected.


Several posts later on the AVSIM Forums led me to this Zip Utility (freeware) and to date it has never failed me...nor asked for a p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word. www.7zip.com I have used to to unzip and zip files for about nine months now and love it.
