Hi, I would love to try out opencart but I can't seem to download it! I try to download it from your downloads page and it downloads just fine but when I try to open the zip it gives me an error. I have tried downloading it multiple times with many browsers but it seems the file is simply corrupted on your end.

Sincerely,

hmm... for what it is worth, I just downloaded 0.7.8 using firefox version 2.0.0.16 and opened the zip file using an evaluation version of winrar (v3.71)

There was no problem.

remember to clear your cache for your browser as it will see the cached (broken ) version of the download and just keep dishing it out....

I cleared my downloads history and it still downloaded corrupted. The file was 1.93 MB in size when the download was complete.

The file size should be around 2.2 MB. It would appear that you a not getting the whole file.

Is there a way to download the file via anonymous FTP? Because it could be that my dial-up connection has been failing during the download (which is likely because it takes 1/2 hour)

Get yourself a good download manager. If you use Firefox, I swear by the "down them all" extension. Otherwise download accelerator, flashget, and others are good.

Hopefully this should help you...

1. First clear your browser's cache,

- Firefox: go to Tools and select Clear Private Data
- Internet Explorer 7 : Go to Tools and click Delete Browsing History, Here make sure you delete Temporary Internet Files.
- Opera: Go to Tools and select Delete Private Data.
- Other browsers should have a similar method of performing this.

2. Next go to the download source:
either from the open cart website or from the google code website:

- http://www.opencart.com/download
- http://code.google.com/p/open-cart/downloads/list

3. After you have downloaded it go to the file where you have downloaded it and extract it.
To do this, right click on the ZIP file and select EXTRACT ALL.

If Windows isn't extracting it properly try using a third party program, I highly recommend 7-Zip - It's free and open source.

Hopefully this has helped you.

First I thought wow version 1.0 hit the deck so I got really exited, only to find out that you refer to your project as v 1.0, which actually is a branch of v 0.7.X. This doesn't feel good, especially since you introduce your version by saying the original OpenCart project is about to undergo a major coding framework change" (which is version 1.0) and at the download you point out that your version 1.0 is based on opencart vanilla 0.7.7.
What will happen when the official v 1.0 will be launched, then your v 1.0x is still based on v 0.7.7, while the official version is 1.0 based upon 1.0. Then, both versions are floating next to each other. Maybe by then your version will be 3.0, but that's another story. But I am really interested behind the logic of the branch naming process. I'm checking out your v 1.0, just downloaded it, cheers!
