Combine several zip files

From IMSMA Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The IMSMANG installation package is almost 1 GB. If the Internet connection is too unreliable and/or too slow then we split the installation package into several smaller parts.

Note.jpg You must use the same zip program to put the parts together as was used to make the smaller parts and the names of the files may not be changed.

Combine/merge zip files with 7-Zip

  1. If necessary, install 7zip (32- or 64-bits version) on your computer.
  2. Download all parts into one folder.
  3. Open Windows Explorer and go to the folder.
  4. Scroll through the folder and make sure that all parts are downloaded.
    Example: if the IMSMANG installation package has been divided into 10 MB parts then you should have 100 parts.
