When a 'corrupt' disk image file really isn't corrupt
Authored by: rspress on Dec 12, '06 09:32:45AM

Not the same problem but this may help a few users out there. Once in a blue moon I will download a file which should be an installer, it could be any kind of file however, and when I click on it it usually opens in script editor.

Often this files are named like "Worlds Greatest program 1" Changing them to "Worlds Greatest program 1.0" will usually make the program work. Sometimes just adding any dot and number will work. You will be asked if you want to add the extension, just say yes. I don't know why this happens but the fix is easy.
