1.Go to Continuata Connect to download the newest Continuata downloader. If you have previously installed the downloader, please update it to the newest version for the best download performance.
2.Put the serial number or download code into the downloader software. Make sure to include the dashes on numerical serials! Choose a download folder on your computer by creating a new folder (for example with the name of the collection) and pointing Connect towards it. This folder will be used to first download all the files; after download all files will be extracted into this folder, too. Makes sure there is enough space in this folder for both download and extraction. You need roughly twice the collection size of free space.
If you are installing an update, you may need to choose the folder of your existing collection. If that is the case, the download email will say so.
Please use an internal drive, as the downloader sometimes has issues downloading to external (USB/Firewire, Thunderbolt) drives. The downloader will automatically start the download. If you need to pause or temporarily stop the download, you can continue it anytime later. You can safely close the Connect application; upon reopening simply click "Download" again and it will pick up where it left. Depending on your connection the download can take a while. Should the connection break, the download will automatically retry, so you can leave it running overnight.
If you do not want to use the Continuata downloader or have issues with corrupted files, go to the Manual Links page, where you will be asked to enter your download code. You will then be sent an email with manual links where you can download the individual rar packages. These links are valid for 24 hours for security reasons. If you run out of time, simply request the Manual Links again. You will then receive a new email with links that are again valid for 24 hours.
Select a download folder and download all the individual rar/zip packages. Usually this will be several .rar files with numbers, a zip file with all the instruments and (for Capsule Collections) the capsule_container.rar. After that, you can extract the files, either with Connect, or manually.
