Hi,

I'm unable to successfully download the POI file. When I try, I get the message "decompression failed", and the file won't open.

Any ideas?

See this thread of previous posts - I posted a solution there - different problem but same solution should work.

Are you using a Mac?

If so, see the readme file for the way round the problem ...

Hi

I've downloaded macupdate.com/info.php/id/22774/the-unarchiver
but when I download POI file it asks for my password which I put in and then nothing - any help appreciated!

Are you using the correct password? The one that you need to unzip the file is the email address that you have registered with this site ...

I get nothing after inputting the, definitely correct, password. I am using a Mac with OSX 10.6.8 and the recommended unarchiver but it all appears to be to no avail. Help please!

I have found some new files under wildcamping which must obviously have come from the above action so the 'problem' is no longer a problem, but it would be nice to have some sort of indication that it has done the task - ah well, thanks anyway

I am not a Mac user, but Phil (Site Admin) is ...

I suggest you send him a PM (private message) and ask if he can help.
