when i download musicmatch 7.5, it says 'the contents of this file cannot be unpacked. the executable you are trying to run has been corrupted'. any thoughts as to how i can open the file?

Are you trying to unpack the executable? or the zipped file?
If the file is in a zip format, then you unzip it, if the file comes as an exe, just click it to run it. Its a self extracting compressed installer. you do not unpack it.

thanks for the reply, but the file isnt in zip format, its an application. when i locate it in the folder and double click it, the error message comes up, and theres nothing i seem to be able to do about it.

The file is an exe then. It's a self extracting installer. The files are packed inside the installer. Double clicking it would cause it to run and install. But if clicking on it does not make it run, the file is corrupt when you downloaded it.
Try downloading it once again.
