    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. The file is zip64 format. The MacOS UI didn’t support this format by default so another tool like “The Unarchiver” is required. It is written in the instructions pdf and above the download button if you select Mac as the host. Currently, we do not plan to release a fix for this problem. Please reopen this case if you can provide new information for us to consider.

      Best Wishes,
      The MS Edge Team
