I did try again and again but was unsuccessful. So I performed some maintenance on my computer and remove any program that I did not want and tried again. I am happy to report that I was able to download it. Only thing is that I don't know exactly what solve the problem. Thank you for your help.

Just had the same Unpacking problem. You need to read the instructions properly, like I didn't at first. You must burn the .iso file onto a disc as a DVD Format! Then just run the setup of the disk and Windows 8 works fine

I found the answer, after two unsuccessful attempts, for me was to make sure there were not any interruptions or pauses from the beginning until the end. It then worked fine.

It seems that downloading from DreamSpark has a lot of problems.

Try re-downloading the file again and, better solution, downloading it using an US proxy (if you're outside USA)
