Not sure if this is the right place for this question.  Downloaded 'VB 2005 Express Edition:Build a Program Now'  from microsoft.com.  File has .aspx ending.  Site has the file as 6-2213-2.pdf, 9.2 MB.  Tried to open with adobe reader 7.0 but message says file (.aspx) is not a supported type or file was damaged.  Get same result when repeat download.  My OS is win2K Pro.  How can I open this file?

If the site says it is PDF then try manually changing the extension to PDF and reopening it with Acrobat.

Can't change file ending.  Solved problem by downloading the file using internet explorer instead of mozilla firefox.  IE brought up a Microsoft File Transfer Manager that managed the download.  Was then able to open file with adobe reader.  Thanks for your help.
