    After i download scrapebox, i got a zip file which i proceeded to unzip. I got a popup window that says: CRC failed in 'scrapebox.exe'. file is broken.

    i was sooo excited when i finally made enough money to buy scrapebox . now i got this little road block. i emailed their customer service but i dont think they will get back to me today. anyone know why i got the popup.?

    aah sorry bro. I hate to hear you're having probs. I'm sure support will be with you asap, they're great. It sounds like their installer is missing a file or a filepath was changed. Should be a quick and easy fix for them.

    I think the problem is not with SB setup file. Are you using WinRar to extract file? then try the steps given here

    I've never had problems with SB except it crashing once in a while, but that's not often.

    Any questions regarding Scrapebox can be submitted to Sweetfunny.
    She is the author/owner of Scrapebox and is also a member of BHW. :)

    Never mind I fixed it by downloading it with another computer then jzipping it and emailing the broken file to myself.

    Download it again (use other browser/flasget or somethign), and unzip using winrar/7z/winzip

    I never had a single problem with SB (BTW IT IS GREAT TOOLS, I using it very often and price is way to low for such great tool)...

    Enjoy :)
