unable to open winrar files

Respected Sir,
I recently downloaded some patches for my game from the website http://www.sportplanet.com/cricket2002/cricket/cricketsite/cricket.htm The website says you need to have winrar3.0 to extract the patches. I then downloaded winrar3.0 form the site told by you. But i recieve an error that says that the file is either in an unknown format or damaged. Please help me what should i do?

I downloaded a movie and it's in RAR files. Please help, I can't open it. I'm a novice.

RE: unable to open winrar files


Hi Sushant Virdi

u should redownload the patch file in a different location on ur HDD. and make sure that it completes the download...

and just an advice, just try opening other rar files by the program to remove doubts that the program is defected...

Good luck.

RE: unable to open winrar files

Make sure you are using the most recent version of Winrar. If you have an older version trying to open an archive that was created with a newer version it won't work and you will get corrupt header errors.
