    It means exactly that - the file is corrupt. Download it again.

    Of course, the file may have been uploaded as broken. In that case, there's nothing you can do.

    You may get this error from broken hardware too. Bad RAM or a bad hard drive.

    if re-download does not work
    test with known good file if that does not work
    move temp folder out of default dir
    could be you don't have enough space

    I have also seen this happen with an old version of winrar. So you may try a new version, or a free program that can handle rars.

    Why don't you go and buy the game? That will work for sure.
