    Default Contributedownload for MAC

    i've downloaded a trila version of contribute 3.1 for MAC. I meet the system
    requirements, but the file that downloads is a cfm file which opens in Excel.
    I use contribute on a pc at work and didn't incur this problem.

    i can't confirm it right now, maybe someone else will pipe in-

    but i think contribute for mac is a .dmg osX disc image file?

    try renaming the .cfm download to .dmg then clicking it to see if the disk
    image will mount.

    thanks, it worked. I never thought of that. Instead I had tried renaming it to .sit or.zip, both without luck.

    I've run into quite a few download manager scripts that wind up giving the
    downloaded file the filename of the script, not the actual file's
    filename...

    sometimes it is a guessing game- MM could save the guessing if they'd write
    out the filenames and filesizes right on the dl page.

    You need to download the Macintosh installer using Safari or Netscape. My bet
    is you're using Internet Explorer. I had the exact same problem. But when I
    downloaded the installer from macromedia.com using Safari, the file type
    downloaded (.dmg) was correct and worked.
