Windows Download Issue

PostMon Dec 04, 2023 4:15 pm

I am trying to download the free version of DaVinci Resolve 18 on my windows 10 desktop. The final that is downloaded file "" automatically turns into final "Unconfirmed 961498.crdownload". It won't allow me to extract anything. I have tried to rename it back to and it still does not allow it. Any help is greatly appreciated. I would really like to try it out before I purchase it.

Thanks!!! -eric

Does the Resolve 18.6.4 archive extract successfully?

Are you using a third party archive extraction tool such as 7Zip?

"Unconfirmed 961498.crdownload" is the name of the temporary file the Windows download "fills" during download. If it stays with that name, it means the download failed for some reason and the file is corrupt. Just download again.

Try a different browser - I had problems with one browser, and changing to another solved the problem.
