Problems with downloading alternaTIFF

  sheila.weston 15:38 16 May 2006

I am trying to download the alternaTIFF file from click here without success.

I have uninstalled Quicktime which, I understand, can cause a conflict. The webpage says that if one has service pac 2 installed in Windows XP one should follow the directions 'in your browser'. What does it mean?

I want to view some files in the British Origins genealogy website - all I get at the moment is a tiny square in the corner of the screen.

As always, many thanks for any help,

If i were you, i would try reinstalling the latest version of quicktime first. If you still have problems, check your security settings are allowing you to run ActiveX controls - as it appears that is what AlternaTIFF is.

Many thanks, furnace, but it the website seems to indicate that only alternaTIFF will work (for images of census returns etc). I'll recheck the active x controls etc.and then contact them by email.
