A 4GB archive size limit in standard .zip, will see errors like this. As the archive is over 4GB, then likely in an extended zip format and perhaps only accessible via the built-in OS X archive utility.

Another possible contender for opening such large zip files, is the Pacifist.

Strangely, both The Unarchiver v3.11.1 and Keka v1.0.4 seemed to be unable to decompress that ZIP file (standard compression with MacOSX). Even after two attempts of compression with that same ISO file. Fortunaly, everything is working fine with the MacOSX Archive Utility. Don't know why.

Error messages that I have got when trying to decompress (in French):
- with The Unarchiver: «Un problème est survenu lors de la lecture du fichier "MW Total Panther". Erreur inconnue.»
- with Keka: «L'extraction de "MW Total Panther" a échoué. Code erreur 2 en utilisant "p7zip". Erreur fatale.»
