Download Error
« on: July 27, 2017, 02:20:05 AM »
I have made several attempts to download Satellite Tracker.  In each instance after download and upon installation attempts, I get repeated messages that the "File is corrupted".  Any advise.

Thanks and apology if posted in the wrong link.

Which file are you trying to download?

Please keep in mind this fact:

When you download the file one must rename the extent from .e__ (that is dot e underscore underscore) to .exe since .exe files are hard and sometimes not permitted to be downloaded as captured by anti-virus programs.

I have downloaded both 2.5.1 and 2.6.1; and followed instructions as directed below to change extensions.  Still i get the same message that file is corrupted.  I am attempting to run on Windows 10, and have heard that program is intended for XP.  Would this be a factor?

The program runs on Windows 7 okay. There are people running on Windows 10 but I believe they are running on Windows 10 32 bit. You may be running Windows 10 64 bit which may be your problem. I have not run Windows 10 here because I just don't like it. I know, as a developer, I should be using Windows 10 now. I do have a new machine that has Windows 10 on it but I have not had a chance to move my development environment over to that. In any event, the Satellite Tracker program is designed to run only on 32 bit since the compiler I am using does not have 64 bit capability.

I ran the compatibility function and reset to Windows 8. Program loaded and all is well.  Thanks
