    This error occurs after the installer downloaded the archive, when it try to unpack archive?
    Also, please show the screenshot of the installer with selected values​​ in comboboxes.

    Please try to download the installer again. Maybe the .exe is corrupted.

    I still have the problem.

    I've also just run into this exact error on Win7 64bit and in my case it went away when I disabled my anti-virus (AVG Free).

    I've also just run into this exact error on Win7 64bit and in my case it went away when I disabled my anti-virus (AVG Free).

    The problem was also in my case caused by the anti-virus (AVG 2013 (not free)). Thanks Mike.

    Sorry for the noise niXman, I should have tested without the anti-virus first. Thanks for the support.

    I have exact the same problem too. I'm using Avast Free and I've uninstalled it just for some time to see if it solve the problem, but it didn't.
    Windows 7 64-bit, last automatic updates, no anti-virus or firewall software.

    // for now using manual download-unpacking

      I have the solution locally, but I need to buy the installer upgrade from CreateInstall[1] (is a producer of the installer) so I able to upload the fix in the public domain. I think that I can do this during this month.
      Sorry for the disadvantages...

    Sorry to opening an old thread but I have the same problem. trying to install i686-4.9.1-release-posix-dwarf-rt_v3-rev1.7z and it fails exactly the same as described. I am using Win7 64bit and have northon internet security. I heard some have problems with antivirus so I disabled temporarily norton but the problem persists.

    On the other hand, I have downloaded the i686-4.9.1-release-posix-dwarf-rt_v3-rev1.7z how can I install it. If I just unzip Eclipse does not recognise the toolchain.

    I would really appreciate some help.

    Have the same problem with installing mingw64

    I´m using win8.1 64bit, disabling my AVG free antivirus didn´t help.

    I tried simply unzipping the file posted above but the toolchain doesn´t get recoginzed that way.

    Would really appreciate the fix.

    I'm having this issue as well. Win 7 x64.

    The installer says "Decompressing file... i686-4.9.1-release-posix-dwarf-rt_v3-rev1.7z"

    I looked in the temp folder for this file and found "\AppData\Local\Temp\gentee12\i686-4.9.1-release-posix-dwarf-rt_v3-rev1.7z" But this file is 20k and looks like a manifest rather than a .7z file the contents:
    "4.8.1|i686 |posix|dwarf|rev2 |http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64/files/Toolchains%20targetting%20Win32/Personal%20Builds/mingw-builds/4.8.1/threads-posix/dwarf/i686-4.8.1-release-posix-dwarf-rt_v3-rev2.7z
    4.8.1|i686 |posix|sjlj |rev2 |http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64/files/Toolchains%20targetting%20Win32/Personal%20Builds/mingw-builds/4.8.1/threads-posix/sjlj/i686-4.8.1-release-posix-sjlj-rt_v3-rev2.7z" etc.

    There is a file next to it that looks like a .7z file called "down.txt" which is 47mb. Perhaps this is the problem?

    Hi guys, I'm running Windows 7 64 bit and I've also run into this problem.
    Turning off Avira doesn't work, and at one point I uninstalled Avira and tried to extract the files yet in all cases, Error Res still pops up. Anyone else find a solution?

    Same issue ("ERROR res") here as well.

    Looking into the temp directory, I find a file i686-4.9.2-release-posix-dwarf-rt_v3-rev0.7z, which is indeed a html file stating a "404 Not Found" error.

    So it seems, the installer likes to download something via http using a wrong address.

    (Can one find out, what it likes to download?)

    This is on a VirtualBox Windows 8.1 Pro 64Bit machine.

    (Bug should be reopened?)

    Changing architecture in the installer to x86_64 resolves the problem. So, the selections neither get checked if they create a valid configuration nor will a meaningful error message be generated.

    Installer should check the http response for 200 or similar.

    I've just experienced the same problem. I get the "error res" message when I choose the i686 architecture. It seems to install fine when I choose x86_64.

    BTW, this is the md5sum of the installer executable [1]:
    c33aec60739c44f208f171a74235b742 *mingw-w64-install.exe

    I don't understand how the status of this bug is "closed-fixed".

      I don't understand how the status of this bug is "closed-fixed".

      Because before the fix this bug has been reproduced on my laptop using Wi-Fi, and when running the installer on Linux using Wine.
      In addition, after this fix, some users have reported to me that the problem is solved.

        Some users, but not all. The last messages (from Thomas Mack and
        myself) indicate that the problem does not seem to be completely
        fixed.

          It seems to be fixed for older versions (4.8.2 iirc). But for newer ones, the download URL is incorrect. I would say that this bug is not fixed for every version/target combination.

            Yes, as I said before, I got the problem when I chose the i686 architecture. I've tried to reproduce this bug again, but this time I've hit bug #410 (Cannot download repository.txt [0]), which, like this bug, has a "closed-fixed" Status, when it's clear that these bugs are not fixed for all of us. :(

              Firstly, ping me to i.nixman{dog}autistici.org. I think it's a bad idea maintain correspondence here in the ticket. Besides, I need to provide you the test builds of the installer.
