Hi Bill,

As I understand from your screen shots and description, you are taken to the download site, but then nothing happens.
You click the “direct link” and still nothing happens, is that so?

What is supposed to happen is that download will start automatically and you should see the
progress in your browser.
Just tested here.

I’m not familiar with the Maxthon browser. Have you tried in another browser to see if it
works there?

 It could only find 4.1.0 and 4.1.1, in an Open Office sub-directory.
