Actually Karl, before you send it in there's one more thing to try. We
saw a problem similar to this that was due to a bug in the server where
it wouldn't transmit the update entirely. According to all other
reports it is working okay now, but it does sound similar to what
you're getting.

Any chance you could try the update from a different computer/OS? If
you'd like, I can provide a server on the internet that you can try
loading the upgrade from.

I'm so glad it's working, but I don't follow you about the file
extension.

What was the complete file name before and after?

Sounds like the installer didn't unpack itself correctly, or the server
isn't finding the update files...
