I have just setup a new Environment on an existing solution, but the deploy fails with the error "Central Directory corrupt." (shows in AppVeyor under environments, and Event Viewer on the server).

Doing deployments with Deployment Agent(v on Windows Server 2022 Standard 21H2

Any idea why this happens ?

    A side note.
    The server is a newly setup server.

    Hi Klaus,

    It's because Deployment Agent cannot download the artifact from storage server. Downloaded file is 0 size. You can try download it from AppVeyor UI on that server or with AppVeyor API.

    Based on our experience, it's because of some firewall settings or other networking appliances preventing access to the storage server.
