  • Hi tlday,

    What file type was downloaded?  Is it an *.exe file?  What other program wants to open it?  What operating system are you using?

  • I have also registered for the free trial of Project Professional and am also having problems with the download.  In my case, the download has saved itself as an .img file.  Apparently it requires a CD Burner to open it which doesn't seem right.  My operating system is Windows 7 Starter. 

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

  • Microsoft and other companies have been using *.img files for quite some time.  There are free programs that work with *.img files.  See:
