first of all, thanks for the quick and enlightening reply. As a matter
of fact, the installer files that I had downloaded from both sourceforge
and cars.uchicago.edu were smaller than 27,281,991 bytes, so this was
the reason why I got that error message.
Now, the reason why the files were downloaded smaller than the actual
size seems a bit strange. Although my computer is behind the Australian
National University firewall, I never had this kind of problem before,
so I thought it shouldn't be the case now. The problem seems to be the
fact that I have Mozilla Firefox as my default web browser, and was
using it to download the files. For some weird reason, Firefox seems to
be getting these files smaller than they should be.
So, I've installed a download manager (getright) and tried again... and
it worked perfectly. I got the .exe file from cars.uchicago.edu with
the exact size, installed the whole package and am already using the
newest version of Ifeffit-Artemis-Athena.
Thanks for the help once again. I hope at least this post may be useful
to someone who may experience a similar situation.
