downloads and error messages
Posted on 2000-02-20
Lately, every time I download a compressed file, after StuffIt decompresses it and I try to open it I get a -39 error message. Norton says the files have a damaged resource fork. Is this a problem with Stuffit or with my system? It doesn't seem to make any difference if I download through my browser or through FTP. This has happened with the monthly Norton virus updates, with copies of Better Telnet and with FireWorks. They seem to download ok, they unstuff and create the appropriate folders with everything where it should be, yet when I try to open the app that -39 error shows up. I have several copies of StuffIt and they all produce the same result. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
