Hi @bclayton, thanks for taking the time to message us!

 

What type of file did you extract after downloading, and what program are you trying to open it on?

 

Are you using a Windows, Mac or Linux device?

 

This will help me assist further!

Do you have the appropriate software to preview those files on your device after downloading them from our website @mozelly?
