7-Zip unable to extract downloaded sysadmin716_pvs_20140909.exe file
I've downloaded the sysadmin716_pvs_20140909.exe file from Pega Academy several times and each time 7-Zip is unable to extract the contents. The error message reads '0 Can not open file 'C:\Temp\sysadmin716_pvs_20140909.exe' as archive.
Tried downloading through different web browsers and each time it displays that the file size is approx. 3.6Gb but the resulting downloaded file is approx. 2Gb. Is there an alternative way of accessing these PVS file for a self-study course as I suspect the file is not downloading completely and therefore is unable to be used.
I'm afraid there is no other known way to download this at this point. If it's consistently stopping at the 2GB mark, you may want to check if there is a download limit imposed by your network provider, or you may want to clear the cache and try again?
Sometimes, I find using a download manager helps, e.g. FreeDownloadManager (FDM) from http://www.freedownloadmanager.org. However, it will be a bit tricky cos you will need to copy the 10-second security token link and initiate the download from FDM within the 10-seconds. But when you do it right, it will usually download properly.
