Step 2 - Download the file
Download the program by clicking on the download link.
When your browser prompts you, choose the "Save" or
"Save to Disk" option.

attempt to download the file again. In some cases, you may be able to resume
the download where you left off, or you may have to delete the incomplete file from
your DOWNLOAD folder, and try downloading it a 2nd time.
