Downloading problem ( PAF4)
Posted by: Lois Davidson (ID *****0384) Date: May 15, 2002 at 00:38:21

I am hoping someone can help me. I had been using PAF4 successfully, until I started re-naming my program to avoid confusion with other files. I got the warning 'changing the name could render the file unusable or unopenable' then 'do you still want to rename?' I clicked on 'no', but it was too late and it wouldn't go back to the original name. Since then I have been unable to open my file. I decided to start over, re-enter all my data. BUT, I can not seem to download the program again. It looks as though it is downloading, but then I get stuck in the loop of 'setup'. Every time I double click the icon, where I stored it, it only runs through the setup options. Also, the icon is different, a red symbol with name PAFSetup.exe So it looks to me like I am downloading only part of the program (the setup part) and not the PAF. Is this possible? Is there something in the LDS site that would limit a user to only one copy of the file?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
