I bought DECtalk 4.6 from them and it works fine. They may have done 
something wrong packaging  5.0 but I doubt they're purposely  trying to rip 
you off.

You should contact them.

You might try using the tar command to uncompress the archive. I can't 
imagine why it would help but it can't hurt. You can unpack and uncompress 
at the same time:

$ tar -zxvf <filename>
