Bad Gzip header.



  • Hello, I have been trying to download the latest versions of all of my mods or a few of them. But every time it gets to summing or unpacking is says "Bad Gzip header" and stops. Please help me as i am unable to update mods and play Arma.

    Thanks for the report. Without further info it is quite hard to determine what is going on.

    General tips: [/b]

    1. If you have PwS for a long time, you might have an old installer version, try to re-download the latest PwS on our webpage: http://withsix.com/download or get Sync :P
    2. Ensure that your Firewall and Antivirus has the appropriate exceptions set.

  • Below is cut and pasted from Trello, under Important read first, card 3 "template card".

    Is this where I start a new problem? This board is NOT intuitive!!
    I deleted steam and steam games from my C: drive (250G SSD) and moved it all to my F: drive (2T).
    Installed steam there.
    Installed WithSIX there.
    @mods were deleted with steam unistall.
    Using WithSIX to install @mods.
    Initially attempted to install 40 @mods using WithSIX, all done, compiled it and gave me "Error info: Bad GZIP header" and upon clicking ok, WithSIX quit and the @mods were not saved... except one, the @CBA_A3.
    Attempted to install @jsrs3 and after assessing it, gave the same error (Error info: Bad GZIP header) and quit WithSIX.
    I have a diagnostics file, but do not know how to load it here.

    I do not know how to load the diagnostics file here.

    @Gunner62 hi, please delet the .synq folder from My Documents\Arma 3. Then install a single mod @CBA_A3
    once you get the error, zip up the .synq folder, and email it to support <at> withsix <dot> com,

    thanks

  • @Sickboy I sent the info as requested to the email address you gave. The .sync file was 12G+. Was that expected? It took me 5 days to upload it to dropbox as it would not go out via mail, even zipped.

  • also, as an aside, I registered at the Trello site, but I could not find any way to start a new card there. It seems others could find how to start new cards. I am not an idiot (usually) so what is the trick please?
