downloading a .dmg file

  jonnyg111 22:08 01 Dec 2006

I am building a website on a pc, and would like to make ebooks of the site freely available and downloadable from the site. The Windows ebook is in .exe format, which downloads with no problems. Mac users will hopefully be able to download a .dmg version of the site. I have the .dmg file up on the server. However, when I try to click and download from the appropriate page, I get a message to say that the file can't be seen. Is this because Internet Explorer cannot see a Mac file? V grateful for any advice.

you should be aware that there's a potential security issue with .dmg files in OS X

It's not serious, and hasn't been patched by Apple, but some Mac users who have heard about it may be deterred from downloading

That you can disable that in Safari.

I've left it as it is but that's just me.
