    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.

    This error always occurs?

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

    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 the same problem. Windows 7 professional, no antivirus enabled.

    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?
