Download FAQ

I have been getting feedback about visitors being unable to download files I included into my posts. I have tried time and again with different browser and platforms. Every time I was able to download without any problem at all. This led me to think that perhaps I should make a download FAQ page that explains how downloads works in beatexcel.

This download FAQ page will show you how to download files from

I have made a change in downloads which I hope is not too annoying. When you click on download links, instead starting the download, it will open a download page that has the download link. By clicking this link you can download example files.

Known issue: Download page may not open in older versions of Internet Explorer.

Download page and download links are tested with following browsers:

Mozilla Firefox 28.0

Google Chrome Version 34.0.1847.116 m

Internet Explorer Version 11.0

Android Mobile Browser (my smartphone)

Here are the step by step guide for downloading files from I used Google Chrome for this tutorial but steps are almost same in each browser.

Step 1: Click on the download link at the end of the post.
