Downloading Tips for Windows

Turn Security Software Off During Download and Installation: Bytes of Learning downloads are confirmed to be free of viruses and malware. Security software can increase downloading time and cause timeouts before the download is finished. Normal setup processes can trigger false virus alarms.

Windows Says 'The Software is Not Compatible': If you try to open an incomplete download of the UltraKey setup software, Windows will report that the software is not compatible with Windows. The real problem is that the download is not complete. Allow time for the download and for Windows security to scan the setup software before opening. The download should be about 278MB in size.

Wi-fi Connection Keeps Timing Out: UltraKey software is a large download of about 278MB. If you find the software does not download completely on a wi-fi connection, connect your computer to your Internet router by ethernet cable or use a computer that is connected using ethernet cable.

The UltraKey Download is Portable: The UltraKey installer for Windows is a single file that can be downloaded to any computer, copied to a USB drive, and ported to the computer where you intend to install UltraKey. If downloading to the target computer is a problem, download the installer somewhere else and port it as described.

Errors Reported During Installation: To install UltraKey, you must be logged onto the computer with administrator privileges. If you intend to have a child use UltraKey, you do not need to be logged in as the child -- in fact, the child probably does not have the necessary privileges. The UltraKey installer puts a shortcut in the general Windows desktop, so your child will see the shortcut when the child logs on.

Downloading Tips for Macintosh

Macintosh Refuses to Open the Image: Macs have a security setting that determines whether it will open downloads only from the App Store, downloads that are signed by known publishers, or downloads from any publisher. Bytes of Learning is a known publisher and it signs its downloads. So, make sure the security setting allows the second type of download. See System Preferences: Security.

Mac Says 'Cannot Open the Image': If you try to open an incomplete download of the UltraKey installer image, it will fail to verify and cannot be opened. The problem is that the download is not complete. The download should be about 790MB in size.

Wi-fi Connection Keeps Timing Out: UltraKey is a large download of about 790 MB. If you find the software does not download completely on a wi-fi connection, connect your computer to your Internet router by ethernet cable or use a computer that is connected using ethernet cable.

The UltraKey Image File is Portable: The UltraKey image file can be downloaded to any computer, copied to a USB drive, and ported to the computer where you intend to install UltraKey. You can even download the file to a Windows computer. If downloading to the target computer is a problem, download the installer somewhere else and port it as described.

Errors Reported During Installation: To install UltraKey, you must be logged onto the computer with administrator privileges, enough to write new software to the Applications folder. If you intend to have a child use UltraKey, you do not need to be logged in as the child when you install the software. Once UltraKey is installed, you can make it accessible to the child.
