ARCHIVED: About multi-part software files in IUware

If your Internet connection is slow, multi-part software files are available for some of the larger downloads on IUware.

Windows

In Windows, the first file in a multi-part download will always end with part01.exe, whereas the others will end with partN.rar (where N is a number).

Save all files in a multi-part download to the same location (e.g., the desktop, or another folder). Once you have downloaded all available files, double-click the first file in the set. The installation process will begin.

Mac OS X

In Mac OS X, the first file in a multi-part download will always have a .dmg extension; any others will have .dmgpart extensions. The files are numbered, but you can download them in any order.

Download the parts and save them to the same folder. To mount the disk image, in the Finder, double-click any of the files. You can then run the installer to install the software.

Note: Versions of Safari prior to 5.1 will attempt to mount .dmg and .dmgpart files by default. If you attempt to download a multi-part file, Safari will display a "Mounting failed" error in the Downloads window. You may disregard this error and continue downloading the remaining parts. Once all the parts have finished downloading, double-click any of the files in the Finder to mount the disk image.
