Hello! I wonder if anyone can help? I've just tried downloading daHornet freeware synth for my mac, and the file doesn't seem to want to open. The file is a .dmg.gz file, and when I double click it, I get the message "does not appear to be compressed or encoded" and it suggests I try stuff it, to uncompress it, which doesn't work. I wonder if I need different software to uncompress it? Anyone got any ideas? Thanks

Thanks for the tip Martin e but can't seem to open the download page... computers tsk... I asked on the mac music site and apparently I can also update stuff it so I'll try that too.

what type of file suffix is .gz?
Have you tried to delete .gz and just have <filename.dmg>?

Try stting the Stuffit preferences, there is a "continue to expand when possible" option. Maybe that helps.

Download version 10 and check the read me file for few bugs you need to sort, including the above preferences option
