Personym had trouble on 03 Aug 2009


Thanks for your speedy reply to my problem suggesting "Try using another browser to download the file"

I did as you suggested :

I tried Camino and Firefox under Mac, and Internet Explorer running under PC emulation using VMware Fusion.

They each gave the same result: all I got was a .htm copy of the page that I was clicking the download linkage on.

What happens is this:

1. I bring up the page ... no problem

2. Then I click on Easy iWeb Publisher v5.0

3. Which takes me to:

4. This takes me to a page telling all about Easy iWeb Publisher 5.0.1 which includes a "Download Now (561K)" linkage (which seems to point to the exact same page I'm already looking at)

5. I click on the "Download Now" link.

6. Which does a split second link to another Macupdate page that goes so fast I can't read the URL it's going to ... and then it returns me to exactly the same page I'm was on before (i.e.

7. In the Downloadfolder on my Mac there is certainly a 52K file called 21666.html ... but this is just an image of the page and not a copy of the software to be downloaded.

I am very ready to think that I am doing something stupid but could it be possible that there is an error on page in that it contains an incorrect linkage ... ????

Would it be possible for you to try the Download Now link for Easy iWeb Publisher on page to see if it works for you and let me know what I am doing wrong.

Many thanks for your patience.

Your insight and suggestion solved my problem perfectly.

The security software package I use on my iMac does indeed have settings that hide various pieces of info relating to my computer and browser which were switched to "ON"

Temporarily switching them to "OFF" instantly enabled me to complete the download of Easy iWeb Publisher.

Many, many, many thanks.
