Campaign Book Vol 1 Download Help Sat, 02 August 2014 14:59
I've been playing Memoir '44 for a couple of years with my son and I thought the Campaign Vol 1 Book would be a great way to increase our experience playing the game. However, after I purchased it and downloaded it, I discovered that I cannot save it on my computer (so every time I close my computer I have to download it again) and I also cannot print it. When I try to do either I get a message "there is an error in the file." I have a Mac. Can anyone help me with this? Has this happened to anyone?

Thanks!

You are being protected by your Mac. It has closed the door to only its own products.

Go into your security settings and choose ALLOW DOWNLOADS FROM OTHER SITES.
Then download your software. Once this is completed and you have your files on board, go back into your security settings and close the door.

Fellow MAC user.

I don't think that is it. I changed my settings and I still get the following message:
"Adobe Reader could not open 'm44campaign1_en.pdf' because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded)." It's frustrating, because I can view it in Safari, but I can't do anything with it.

This opens the door. I have had a similar problem and it always says "the files are damaged" if I don't open the door first.

This is only for downloaded software, not PDF.

If you use Acrobat as your PDF viewer in Safari you have to use the Acrobat buttons to Save or Print the file. If you do File > Save or File > Print it'll be empty.

Thanks Bart. I am glad you have a better understanding of how the software works. I hope this will be the fix our mate needs.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! It worked I was able to access the content from the Downloads menu and open it with Adobe Reader. Now I can finally sit down and read it.

Cheers!

By the way, you can print it, but you can't save it on your computer. Security settings of the PDF file don't allow duplication.
