I've been trying to download and install this app for the last 1/2 hour or so, with no success.

I get a 1.3mb download, and a shortcut. Windows reports a pf file is also here, but when I click on the shortcut, it says it's damaged, corrupt or possibly has a virus.

I've tried this on a machine without a firewall, virus scanner, etc. all with no luck.

This is a XP SP3 laptop with a GB of ram using FireFox. Is it possible that FireFox is the issue here? Anyone else run into this, and how did you solve it?

73 and thanks Mike

I think I found the answer. It looks like FireFox - or one of the plugins I have - screws up the download.

Other folks looking to import and use this take heed. 73 Mike

Why not just switch to the IE rendering engine? That's why the fox sits on the bottom toolbar, place your mouse pointer over it.

Most likely a plugin or something screwed up in the cache.
I use Firefox exclusively and not run into this problem. Glad to hear you got it fixed :)
