Not sure about the others with the same problem, but I followed the readme.txt and extracted the zipped file to the main folder. Will try again with a new download from another server.
Thanks for the thought, though.
I do wonder whether its about time the team dumped this old 'extract the zip yourself' method of installing and just made a simple installer that put the files in the right place.
I know that us old hands are fine with it but its a bit off-putting to new users, of which there will be many more in the months ahead I'm sure.
Festy - make sure you replace existing files. I got the same error because inititally I wanted to install patch S to a new directory to save damaging patch Q. But I got this message so I read the readme.txt. It states you must replace the existng files in the LFS working directory.
Thanks Gentlefoot. I think my reply was the unclear one. I did have the zip file in the LFS directory, and I chose to "extract here". I also had to choose "yes" to overwrite (update) files that already existed. I also tried to extract it through winzip as well. Unless I'm missing something major (and if I am, boy will my face be red ), I can't see what else I may be doing wrong.
