Nope. I know that you tested the archive but just as a matter of
interest: how large (in bytes) is the version you downloaded?
Another question: if you downloaded the file per FTP, I trust that your
FTP client downloaded it in binary mode? Not goading - just haven't
noticed this problem in similar circumstances over various NT 4.0 -
py152.exe installations.
