Corrupt download

You got a bad download. It happens sometimes. Redownload (clear your cache first to make sure you don't get the already-corrupted file) and try again.

7-zip self-extractor

.paf.exe's used to be just 7-Zip self-extractors, not the NSIS installers they are now. Maybe the suite still is... if so, that would explain why the error mentions 7-Zip.

I think you are correct.
The original suite was created before the new format.

Things have got to get better, they can't get worse, or can they?

So i ended up installing the basic suite of PA, you know the one that has only the menu and stuff?. I had to do it because everything else gave me problems and even managed to erased the entire data on my pendrive, i hope it doesn`t happen again.

Btw i have a NEW kingston 1Gb pendrive data traveler, i dunno think it was the pendrive`s fault because is brand new...anyway i hope everything goes smoothly now since i really like the concept of portable apps.
