Problems with CWS zip file - Help!

Dec 14, 2010 at 1:00 PM

I am completely new to Umbraco, and decided to follow the advice of others by installing CWS to learn what makes Umbraco tick.

I have downloaded the 'Creative_Website_Starter_2.0.2.zip' file from http://umbracocws.codeplex.com/, but I can't unzip it - I get error messages using wizip, winrar and windows compressed folders - help!

Regards,

Hello Mark,
The ZIP is a package file designed for Umbraco to be installed as a package - but you can download the package directly from the Package repository built into Umbraco (Developer --> Packages --> Package Repository)

Hope this helps. Anymore questions just let me know.

Thanks,
Warren :)

Wow - that was a quick reply, thank you!

Of course, I should have read your excellent 'How to use Creative Website Starter Site for Umbraco' guide first - sorry.

If I have any further questions, I'll try to make them a bit more sensible next time.

Thanks,

Mark
