I.E. 5 is the solution that I benefitted from, certainly wasn't MAPICS! but then, in their defense, it should have never been an error from MS.

I could save it to a Windows directory (c:\temp, for example), but not to an AS/400 PC folder (AFDWEB) because of the double extension. This "error" has mercifully gone away in IE 5.0, so I can once again download MAPICS ptf's directly to the 400 PC folder.

I noticed that if I download with Microsoft Explorer I have an error when using AFDWEBGET(CPF5175)when I download with Netscape I do not get that error. What is rather strange is the following experiment. Use WINDOWS explorer select TOOLS ,OPTIONS , FILE TYPES , NEW TYPE , associated extension 000 , ok , gives an error 'the extension '.000' is already in use by file type '000_auto_file'. What is also strange is that the extension .000 is also taken by Geoworks http://pw2.netcom.com/~estraws/types.html I submitted this to Mapics support. the reply of mapics support the 000 file extension may have been associated with a Open or View action with Microsoft's Internet Explorer. The association occurs when customer's attempt to open or view a MAPICS PTF via Internet Explorer. The easiest method to resolve this problem is to un-install Internet Explorer. After Internet Explorer has been successfully removed from the PC, you can reinstall Internet Explorer without any problems. To avoid this problem in the future, one should only save our PTF's to disk when prompted by Internet Explorer. In other words, never select the Open option in Internet Explorer when it comes to MAPICS PTF's. The above only applies to our PTF's with numeric file extensions (eg: 000, 240, 640, 650, etc). You should not have any problems with EXE, TXT, and DOC file types. Tim Rodriguez - MAPICS Support.

I'm trying to apply SH13740.000. It appears to be a prerequisite at XA 5.5 for installing AM Plus. I'm getting the error CPF4525 when using the AFDWEBGET command against it. I checked the mapics website already and meet the software requirements for windows NT and client access. Is the problem that this is actually a informational PTF?
