When I try to install the latest version of Jaikoz, trying to extract the Jaikoz.exe file, it has a message with a heading of "Compressed (zipped) Folders Error" and a message of "Error reading the file."

And I did install the latest version of java (or at least the version needed).

Although, it would let me install the second-to-latest version of Jaikoz. (I did this, because, since I couldn't get the latest, and the problems fixed from the second-to-last one didn't affect the accuracy of file tagging and were only issues that might happen, I thought I'd use the second-to-last edition of Jaikoz; but, now, I need the latest, as it does the thing [that was fixed for the latest version] where it displays an 'Unexpected Error' instead of the real problem in error and warning popup messages)

Hi, did you download Jaikoz directly from www.jthink.net, and you talking about the Windows version, also it sounds like you are having problems opening the zip rather than when you do the actual install, have I got this right ?

I have just downloaded it from the website, unzipped the exe and installed and run without any problems.

thanks Paul (Administrator)

First off, I did try to download Jaikoz directly from www.jthink.net. Second, I use Windows and, therefore, was obviously trying to download the Windows version. Lasty, I was able to open the zip file okay. Then it showed the exe file within the zip file. I pressed "extract all files" (even though the command was for all files, the exe file was the only one in it), then it showed the Extraction Wizard; I gave the new destination for the file, hit "Next," then it gave me a message with a heading of "Compressed (zipped) Folders Error" and a message of "Error reading the file" with a big, red "X."

I am probably going to just wait for the Jaikoz with the new PUID's and try to install that, but, if you can help, I would still like a reply.

Thanks

OK, its sound like there is a problem with whatever you are using to unzip the Jaikoz.zip file ( for example Winzip). Either there is a problem with that software or there is a problem with the zip file that only surfaces when unzipped with certain software.

Could you tell me what you are using, AND download Winzip and try that.

Winzip couldn't read the file, either. I was originally using something called "Extraction Wizard," which was probably the default one for the computer I have, as I have never dealt with a zip file before.

Oh, and, if it matters, when I successfully installed the second-to-latest version of Jaikoz, I just used the "Extraction Wizard;" I never had Winzip before you told me to get it.

It still won't let me do it. I even went and bought the best version of WinZip. It says "CRC Test Failed."

Did you download it again ? Please try the following to ensure you download is not getting corrupted

Download md5 to create a checksum for the the file, I used the md5sums program available at http://www.pc-tools.net/win32/md5sums/, unzip and install.

Then run against your zipfile, you should get the same value for the checksum as below, let me know how you get on.

C:\Apps>md5sums d:\download\Jaikoz.zip

MD5sums 1.2 freeware for Win9x/ME/NT/2000/XP+
Copyright (C) 2001-2005 Jem Berkes - http://www.pc-tools.net/
Type md5sums -h for help

What do you mean by "unzip and install" the md5sums program. Please tell me what to do step by step, in the simplest terms possible.

-Thanks

What is being suggested is that it seems likely that the Jaikoz.zip on you hard drive is not exactly the same as the Jaikoz.zip on the jthink.net web server, due to loss/dropped packets/"interference" during transmission.

The MD5 algorithm can take practically anything and convert it into a very small, but unique, string (MD5 checksum). If even one letter is wrong the checksum won't match. This is also what is widely used to secure your password when you register for websites.

Anyway, 'Anonymous' says the checksum for his copy of Jaikoz.zip is 90e633c5c61369fa4f7aa828adac168b. I checked my Jaikoz.zip and the checksum is also 90e633c5c61369fa4f7aa828adac168b. Since I can unzip my file, I will assume the Jaikoz.zip on the server also shares the same checksum.

Now, the question is, does yours?

1. If you head over to RapidCRC's website and download a copy of the "RapidCRC 0.6.1 Installer". Open this up and it will install like any other program. Let it associate itself with *.md5 files if asked.

2. I have created an MD5 checksum file (using RapidCRC). Download a copy of this file by right-clicking here and selecting "Save target as.../Save link as...". This file assumes two things, a) this file is in the same folder as Jaikoz.zip, b) the file which it is to check is called exactly "Jaikoz.zip".

3. So now you should have a Jaikoz.zip and a Jaikoz.md5 in the same folder. The *.md5 file should have a green/black ying-yang type icon. If so, double-click it. If not, right-click it and go to Send To -> RapidCRC. If you can't do either, you will have to launch RapidCRC from the Start menu, and open Jaikoz.md5 using the "Open Files" button.

4. RapidCRC will look for a file called Jaikoz.zip and check it matches our checksum. It will report one of the following in the top-right of the window.

  • File not found - There isn't a Jaikoz.zip in this folder.
  • File corrupt - Jaikoz.zip is corrupt. It isn't the same as the one on the server. Download a fresh copy and try again.
  • File OK - The file isn't corrupt. It is an exact copy of the one on the server. There is a conflict between the file and the unzipping program.
  • Error - There is something wrong with the Jaikoz.md5 file.

    Tell us how you get on.

  • d.

    Please simplify the instructions - down to "take the mouse and click..." I don't understand a word you are saying. Sorry. And leave out non-instruction parts.

    Goto http://www.pc-tools.net/win32/md5sums/ website
    Download: md5sums-1.2.zip
    Extract it to directory with winzip
    Start Command Window
    Go to where you extracted the md5sums program and run against your jaikoz download

    For example:If you put md5sums into C:\Apps and downloaded Jaikoz to C:\download run the folowing command:
    C:\Apps>md5sums c:\download\Jaikoz.zip

    Then copy the output to this forum

    What do "run against your jaikoz download" and "run the folowing command: C:\Apps>md5sums c:\download\Jaikoz.zip" mean? Sorry.

    I gave up; I just put my music on an external hard drive that I have, tried to get the latest version of Jaikoz on my laptop (which I did successfully; it must have just been this computer that wouldn't get it), plugged in my external hard drive and did it on my laptop. So, everything is okay, now, right? --- WRONG. Okay, the first time I try it, it gives me some kind of error message; I didn't pay too much attention to it. So, I aborted and thought if I tried it again, it'd work. I tried it again and it says on the console (or whatever the thing is that says what you've done) "SEVERE: Unexpected problem with Jaikoz" and then "SEVERE: rethrew: {E301}: XML document structure must start and end within the same entity" Although, it continues tagging the music from MusicBrainz --- and at the normal speed. It stopped at 6014 out of 6040 songs, and I clicked "Finish". I aborted and thought I'd try ONE LAST TIME. When I tried the third time, it did the same thing, but didn't mention the XML thing - it said something was wrong but not anything specifically. It also stopped at 6013 songs instead. I went ahead and continued and saved to my external hard drive, knowing that I could just later delete it and put the correct information from my computer. Should I ignore this? Since it continued tagging, will this affect its reliability on tagging --- then, if not, should I ignore it?

    -Thanks

    It sounds like you have a problem with just one file, it shouldnt effect the others. can send your log files to the support@jthink.net email address they will be named jaikoz-user0.0.log and jaikoz-debug0.0.log

    I don't know what my log files are and don't know how to get them because I'm stupid with computers (as if you didn't already know), so, unless it is really important for me to send them to you, can we please just forget about it? (And I know if you tried to explain it to me, I still wouldn't understand).

    I tried getting Jaikoz on my default computer (the one that wouldn't let me get the last verion) AND my laptop (the NORMAL computer that would actually let me get the last version). Both wouldn't let me get it, and both did the same thing. Everything went okay, until I got to the part where I was supposed to click on the icon with the picture of the rocket coming out of a cup of coffe to the left of its text, which says says:

    "Jaikoz
    LaunchAnywhere GUI
    Zero G"

    I clicked it, and got this message:

    "Fatal Application Error

    I clicked "Details..." and got this:

    I went to the Jaikoz main page (http://www.jthink.net/jaikoz/jsp/startup.jsp). I selected "Downlad Java." Under "Download Java Runtime," I selected "Windows XP [since I have Windows XP]." And I downloaded it from there.

    Hi, yes that should be correct.

    But when you install Jaikoz.exe, at stage five of the installation you get to the following screen (Choose Java Virtual machine)



    You need to select java\jre1.5.0_10\bin\java.exe (or similar), please recheck and retry

    You said, "Ok, let leave it as this: if you have a problem with one mp3 file, and you want it sorted, send me the file and I will fix the problem in the next jaikoz release, otherwise just leave it".

    When Jaikoz loads my files, it says (individually, for each song) a few of my songs are represented as MP3's but not really MP3's, and they may be corrupt. When this happens with one of my songs, it tells me this, and then stops loading the rest of the songs.

    Referring back your quote, how do I send you one of these files?

    -Thanks
