Hi all,

 

Just downloaded the latest s&d 1.4 something has gone wrong. When i finished the download i went for the latest updates which was fine ,chose the ones i wanted and clicked on download ,but for some reason it comes up with the message "bad checksum".i wondered if i had gone wrong somewhere so tried again but no joy.

 

I uninstalled then reinstalled but, it keeps coming up with the same message.

Yes, as comper6 advises, your bad checksum tells you that your downloaded file is not a perfect match with the intended original. Bad checksum = corrupt file = bad download.

 

Actually, Spybot gives you your choice of locations from which to update. Look carefully as it goes through its motions.

 

Bad checksums are common. No worries. Happens all the time. Never proceed with anything that has a bad checksum, because the function exists only to let you know that your copy is not a perfect match. Very useful.

Generally the BetaNews FileForum server is good, but still if you keep getting bad checksums just switch to a SaferNetworking.org server.

I think the server overloaded when many users trying to update.

 

Bad Checksum or your connection is poor.

 

Try again later or download DF manually
