Downloaded VM is corrupt

Downloaded the latest VM. md5 sum is correct, yet zip file is corrupt. I have tried this several times now. Any suggestions?

md5sum 2017.5

Hi @gisle, I took a closer look at this β€” some ZIP clients seem to make some noise related to 4GB files and 64bit zip. I repackaged the ZIP with some additional flags on it, and on those noisy clients I no longer see those warnings. The new MD5 sum is 86ec1835e41e24495478443a84464034 (you can download at the same URL as before, I hot-swapped the file). For what it’s worth, even with the old zip file, when I used a client that complained about the offset (like what you saw above), the OVF file still loaded up in VirtualBox just fine. Good luck!

Never got it to work, but 2017.6 works perfectly.

Thanks for the quick response,
Gisle
