After selecting ‘sonar-3D-LAB Software’, you have to download a ZIP file or the content of a ZIP file to an external volume (memory stick). Because you are downloading a compressed ZIP-file, the System may show a warning that this file could be dangerous. Anyway, try to use the Menu Option “Save As” in the “Save File Dialog” to know were the downloaded file is located. Otherwise the System in general uses the location “C:\Users\yourname\Downloads\…
Alternatively you just rightclick on one of the Options above and choose your external volume using “Save Link As…”
Microsoft Internet Explorer:
- a toolstrip is shown next to the upper or lower screen boundary…
- Do you want to open or save the file “sonar_LAB.zip from realphysicsblog.files.wordpress.com?”
- Save / Save As / Open Folder
- Insert memory stick / ok
- maybe a warning appears next to the lower screen boundary: sonar_LAB.zip is an unusual download …
- click on the ZIP-Icon next to the warning
- extract to…?
- Insert memory stick / extract
- always unpack (extract) all the compressed files whatsoever before you continue to install, execute or open the files. Otherwise you will get an error while installing the software.
Model- and Macro-Files are compressed ZIP-files as well, but may be downloaded directly to a harddisk instead a memory stick. Some of the above ZIP files contain a Guide (read me file) how to use or install the downloaded Software.
