    Strange, I tried earlier versions and get the same, existing downloads seem to work. I wonder if a Windows10 update has done its usual thing of messing things up without my permission. I am going to try a Wib7 one later.

    Bob,

    I've just installed the latest version of Proton - no problems here. I'm using Windows 10 64-bit.

    Much as I admire your fortitude and perseverance, why do you keep banging your head against Win 10?

    I'm gonna stay with Win 7 till a must have app doesn't support it (not holding my breath) and create an offline backup strategy that laughs at ransomeware etc.

    Interesting, I tried on Win7 and got a different message but pretty much the same, saying the archive was empty although it was around 80meg. I then noticed it had added .zip on to the file. removed the .zip and it worked fine, I am not sure why that is happening as I have not known it before.

    Hi George,
    I am of the same sentiment but when my laptop failed I was forced to go Win10 or second hand.

    Regards,
    Bob

    One mans "second hand" is another mans "refurbished".

    I always buy refurbished laptops. You can get some fantastic deals on 2 or 3 year old, top of the line machines.

    That's interesting Bob, I had the same problem. It downloads as a .ZIP file but it's not a .zip file. Just removed the .Zip extension using rename and then ran the EXE and all is sweet.
    I don't think it's a W10 problem but I can't explain why some people got it first time and others didn't. Another great mystery of the world!

    Hi Bob,
    I was using Firefox too. Maybe that's the issue.
    I'll try a download with Chrome.

    Hi Bob,
    That's it, you've found the problem. I used Chrome and everything worked as it should.
    Firefox has of late developed some strange actions. I also use it to access a cloud based service of email and documents and it wouldn't proceed beyond the welcoming Outlook screen whereas Chrome and Edge would. A few days later it started operating correctly. The latest version seems to be broken. I think they have gone overboard with the intruder protection and causing problems as a result. Clearly it's Firefox that is adding the .zip extension.

    Latest Firefox pose to much concern on issued certificates from the connecting site. Several times it refuses to open a web page within certain circumstances, whereas few minutes later will do anyways.

    This is puzzling. As I said in a previous post, I've had no issues with Windows 10 in this respect. Firefox is my standard browser which I use to download all files from this site. Again no issues.
