"WP-Admin" Folder Missing (6 posts)

    When I downloaded the latest version of WordPress from wordpress.org, it comes without the WP-Admin folder and it has many many duplicate files, such as there are 5 files called admin.php and 2 called install.php.

    Please advise.

    Did you download it from here: http://wordpress.org/download/
    I just did and the wp-admin folder is there.

    That's funny because I did download from the link you posted and it still shows no wp-admin folder.

    I've tried both the .zip and the tar.gz
    I'm currently at work on a PC running XP and has the bog standard WinZip.

    Installed winrar on the PC and can see the wp-admin folder but another question rises.
    I was using a internetftp provided by my host and I uploaded the whole archive to the ftp for it to extract itself, why did it not see the extra folders?

    Maybe WinZip is at fault here. Extract it with winrar and ftp it to the right directory.

    WinZip was at fault, used WinRAR and worked fine.
    Thanks for the help!
