an error occured while installing this d-mod?

Quest for Not Quite as Lame (The)

There's a message saying that 'an error occured while extracting the .dmod file.'
What does this mean?

Error: Improperly archived file 'blah blah (a file name, I assume)'

Is it okay to proceed with the game? I've installed and uninstalled several times. I'd really like to play this d-mod...

Any one can please help me?

Try to re-download it from this site and install it again. The file may have become corrupted.

Ok, I redownloaded the file and reinstalled but the same message popped up :/
I don't know what to do... probably will just try to play the game just to see if it runs ok.

Thank you for your reply

Never be afraid to ask, but don't demand an answer 
Which file is it complaining about?

I've seen this error a few times. It was ignorable for me each time, but if you want to make sure, you can check the dmod folder to make certain that the file it is complaining about exists in there. For example, if it's complaining about "dink.dat", check that there's a dink.dat at: C:\lenas euphoric games folder\Dink Smallwood\tqfnqal4\

If it's complaining about "thumbs.db", it's totally safe to ignore the error.

The file name is too long to type! lol

The game ran smoothly and I had no problem at all, just finished it.

Thank you guys all for your replies & help nonetheless
