It may just mean you don't have anything on your computer to extract the zip file.

Can you post a screenshot of what you are seeing?
Also make sure you have downloaded the whole file. It says on the d/l page how big it should be.

As a suggestion always download files to your desktop or a folder on your desktop so you can find them.

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.

Is there a way that you can download the software of phpbb so I can have my own forum
Surely you know how to donwload and open a zipfile by now? And MS Windows recognises a zipfile immediately, double clicking automatically opens them.

With all due respect, but if (a year later) a zipfile is a problem, then what about a host, a database engine and database, php version, etc..?
A bug is a feature that hasn't made it to the manual (yet)

phpBB is not a windows program you can install on your local computer.
It is a internet application for running a bulletin board on a server.

See also the "Requirements" and "Installation" parts of the userguide
