Symptoms

When attempting to run the PFT 8.0.0 installer, have been continuously getting the below error.

ERROR

*******ERROR MESSAGE *******
Preparing to install...
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
The size of the extracted files to be installed are corrupted. Please
try to download the installer again and make sure that you download
using 'binary' mode.
Please do not attempt to install this currently downloaded copy.
Installation terminated...

Have tried all the classic solutions for this problem like:
1. Trying unzip V75713-01.zip option
2. Unzipping the package on windows and transferring bin files to Linux
3. Replacing the entire bin folder in OFS_PFT_PACK with contents of bin from another separate extract

Not using the OS specific unzip utility instead tried the unzip and unzip -a options.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Run the PFT 8.0 app pack installer
