Some browsers might change the downloaded file type from .tar.gz to a file type not recognized by the operating system. To correct this, change the file type back to .tar.gz. Use of Download Director will prevent inadvertent renaming of files at download.

To Install the Interim Fix

1. Change to the directory where you have downloaded the Interim Fix.

2. Using your file compress and decompress utility, decompress the .tar.gz file. If you are using WinZip® , select the option "use folder names".
