Upgrade_Nebula3_Pro_1.3.486 RAR[1] file

Hi there. ;) I currently have Nebula3Pro 1.3.460 installed on my PC. I read on the forum about the latest release being 1.3.486. So I thought it would be just a simple case of downloading this file and installing it over my previous install. There is a link, in the "My Downloads" area, titled "Upgrade Nebula3 Pro WIN x86 1.3.486". When I download the file attatched to this link I get a RAR[1] file. Why is this file a RAR[1] format? What do I need to do with it? I think I am right in understanding that the RAR[*] format is used when you have multiple RAR files that all need to be extracted when installing. But, from what I can see in the My Downloads area and from what I have read on the Acustica site, there is just this one aforementioned RAR[1] file attatched to the "Upgrade Nebula3 Pro WIN x86 1.3.486" link and that is all that is needed to obtain the latest 1.3.486 update. I am confused :? .

First of all...epic screen name! He's a very naughty boy!

Usually when you are seeing that it indicates that your browser isn't finished with the download. The actual file that should get downloaded during that process is
Upgrade_Nebula3_Pro_1.3.486.rar
I just downloaded to confirm. Unless the website is broken and it's serving you the wrong file in particular (which might be possible, sometimes there are scripts that compile updates; though I think that's not the case with Nebula) it seems like a download problem.

Personally, I have all kinds of troubles downloading from European servers (I'm in the states) depending on the day/how the network is acting. Lots and lots of CRC errors on extract. Usually some combination of switching browsers/computers or going to a different network for the download does the trick for me (between my home connection and my pipe at work I can usually get one of them to work for me).

.RAR file is a type of compressed file that also
contains a checksum [with possible repair feature].

I thought it was used as a way to better insure the integrity of the file[s] AND as a method that prevents 'some' anti-virus programs from blocking the download [due to executable .exe].

just my guess :roll:

I have the same problem when i use Opera to download, i had to change the filetype in the file selector box to all files and rename the file, the other method was to download with firefox.

Have you checked your file directory?
If there is already a file in your directory with the same name, the new downloaded file will automatically get the (1) extention added.

Just edit the file name and remove (1)
