dick ronson I put my ebook on my web page.  When I download it, I get a black window with an error message.  What am I doing wrong?

I am using Activ E-Book Compiler.

EBookCompiler I am pretty sure (not 100% certain) the problem is that you uploaded your EXE file to your web site in ASCII mode.

Use FTP or your site's web based control panel to delete the file from your web site - and then re-upload the EXE file in **Binary** mode.

I think this will solve the problem.
