  1. Wa ‘alaykumas Salaam, dear brother.

    What is the size of the file that you downloaded? It should be around 39.44 MB. If it is less, then probably your download finished incompletely and you can try downloading it again. If it is the correct size, use a good zip utility to extract the contents of the file and run the “SETUP.exe” file.

    If the problem still persists, then tell me back and inshaa’Allaah I will see if I can find the time to upload the file myself to MediaFire and give you an alternative link.

    Was Salaam.

  2. Brother, you can try another software which has been around for quite a while now but I still haven’t got the chance to write about; it is called Jawami’ul Kalim (حوامع الكلم). You can install it from this link:

    Brother you can either try running the software in compatibility mode:

    Or you can instead use the Maktabah Shamilah software which is much more powerful than the above software:

    Another software that is even more powerful than the Maktabah Shamilah for hadeeth is Jawami’ul Kalim:
