Installation issue

Recommended Posts

Guest SKireyev

Hello--Just got the F. How big is the install file supposed to be? I double click on the file to start install, a black window pops up and disappears, and that's it.I re-tried downloading a couple times and my file size says 71.9MB in the properties.Any ideas?

Nameless-(Please sign all posts in this forum!)The file fully downloaded (in the ZIP file) should be 73.688MBMake certain that you have the installer extracted from the zip file before running...If you are seeing the window appear/close- it might be worth checking on your anti-virus/spyware settings. Some of the spyware protection programs out there create all manner of problems by slapping closed legitimate programs because they demonstrate an ability to communicate with the oustide world...Worst case- redownload from your link into a different directory- and see if you get the same file size...

Sorry for no sig, Robert. My forum user settings were off, and not appending my signature to the end.I am using Opera to download, and I think it wasn't getting the packet right. I didn't have issues with your products before, so I know it's on my end somewhere. I will figure it out!BTW, thanks for all you guys contribute to our hobby.Cheers,

Sergey,I had the same problem: For whatever reason, Opera saves the file with the extension ".exe", but in fact it's just a ZIP file.Rename the file and unzip the installer. Worked for me.To be sure, I redownloaded it with Firefox, and the files are identical in size and content.HTH - Norman
