    Hi all,

    purchased 3 month of iRacing today but having problems with installer on quick setup guide.

    When download it doesnt open, windows asks me to choose a program or use the web which doesnt open it.

    I have latest java and flash player, some advice so I can go racing please lads.

    Thanks

    Craig,

    What is the file you have downloaded?

    If memory serves it should be an executable file (.exe) for you to run the installer. Should be something like....

    iRacingInstaller_2011*******.exe

    :)

    Looks like the download isn't completing... it's still a temporary file (hasn't renamed itself to an .exe yet)

    try following, rename downloaded file to .exe extension (add .exe on end of filename) and after that just doubleclick the file
