Blank page… no installation wizard coming up

Tried to download latest version. Had problems trying to download (download interruptions) continuously. After resuming download, tried to unzip with windows but got message ‘Compressed (zipped) Folder .... is invalid’. Tried downloading several times until a successful download completed.

When trying to unzip ... still get the same ‘invalid’ zip file error.

The folder does unzip with other utilities - but with header errors and some other errors.


I’ve tried downloading the zip file from different computers, different browsers etc. Same result each time.

After installing the ‘probably invalid’ folder - I get no installation wizard page.

I am using Win2008 Server / IIS 7 with PHP5.3.8, latest mySQL and all necessary extensions installed correctly.

If I browse to magento-check-alt.php (which I found on the web) ... I get everything reported as OK.
