    I have experienced the same issues – has anyone else had luck?

    Issue is still there with HDP 2 on Hyper-V – The zip file upload is Corrupted – Needs to be looked by Hortonworks.

    We are unable to use it.

    Yes, the file was corrupt. I am sorry for that. The files have been updated. Please download again and let us know if we have satisfactorily fixed the issue.

    I downloaded Sandbox 2.0 for Hyper-V (Nov 19). When trying to import the virtual machine, after selecting the folder, I received the error message “Hyper-V did not find virtual machines to import from location…”. I tried different sub folders with no luck, then noticed that within the Virtual Machines folder that the file was of type .exp rather than .xml. I tried copying the file contents to a .xml file, but still no luck.

    I was able to install Sandbox 1.3 on Hyper-V back in June without this problem (which is why I noticed the .exp file type difference).

    Can someone suggest a way around this, or is it a problem with the download package?

    Please ignore my previous post.
    I downloaded a second time, and was able to load without problem. The downloaded file size was the same, but presumably there was some form of corruption, or else I did something different during the extract. I also was previously unaware that the .exp file type is to be expected.


    Folks – This corruption issue is still occurring. I have downloaded 4 times today and the exp file extension is still preventing HyperV from working. Appears to be some chronic corruption problem. Please review and update the files with a good set.


    Hi Adam,

    What browser are you using to download the image?
    I have seen some browsers finish the file at 2GB which causes the corruption

    I will download it myself and let you know.




    I was using firefox. would that cause the problem?

    I have tried to download this one with Firefox and Chrome, no luck with both of them.

    Any idea how could I use it ?
