Can't unzip a .zip driver file

I dounloaded the latest Atheros Bluetooth driver for AR3012 from here, named as follows:

bt-7.4.0.125-win7.zip

The problem is that I can not get 7zip to unzip it, so that I can install it.

Any experience or ideas?

Welcome to the Seven Forums

You may need to download load it a again, I downloaded it and used 7 Zip and windows own extract tool and it unzipped for me.

That's a 32bit driver anyway, I don't see one there for a 64bit for the AR3012.

Can you post the Hardware ID's from device manager, properties, details tab, we might be able to find 64bit drivers.

I found the latest driver from another source, and it unzipped fine. This driver actually works for 64 bit as well.

Thanks for the reply.

A guy in another forum pointed me to this link for this latest driver, on this page, which espanded out with no issues. I installed it and seems to work fine.
