The zip file has a content of 0 kb? That would indicate a partial download; one that didn't complete for one reason or another. Try downloading it again. If it still shows 0 kb, then the downloadable file is fugged.
If all went well and the downloaded file shows a size well above zero, delete the existing .pln file in your Configuration Manager\Plugins and the entire GD Patch 1 folder in Configuration Manager\Systems\Packages. Then extract the .zip file (which should be one .pln file and maybe a readme.txt file) to the \Plugins folder.
Start Configuration Manager and then close it.
For some unknown reason, the Configuration Managers don't always extract all the files of a .pln (plugin) to the Configuration Manager \System\Packages\(mod name) folder. Most times they does, some times they doesn't.
No plugin is made without an install.txt file. It has to be in the plugin for the plugin to work. You can find it by opening your Configuration Manager for CC3\Plugins folder and then opening the GD Patch.pln with WinZip, WinAce or WinRAR. If you have any trouble opening the .pln file, change its extention to .zip and try again.
When you have the .pln file open, note the number of files in it. You should also be able to see the install.txt file and the uninstal.txt file.
Now go to the Configuration Manager for CC3\System\Plugins\GD Patch folder. See if the number of files in that folder matches the number of files in the .pln. I'll bet they don't. And one of the missing files is going to be the install.txt file.
That's all cool. No problem. Go back to the Configuration Manager for CC3\Plugins folder. Using WinZip, WinAce or WinRAR, extract the GD Patch.pln to the \System\Packages\(mod name) folder, and accept overwrite of all files.
Now the number of files in the .pln should match exactly to the files in the .pln.
That should do it. If that doesn't work, then there is something wrong with the file that you downloaded.
