If any one can reproduce the crash please help, point me to the right support site or forward this message to support (I couldn't find there email).

Problem details:

1- Each time I try to download one product I get a dialog box with a tittle: "LUA Error !"

2- To reproduce the problem, try to download the following product:;ext-gen1171

3- Click on the left side "Green download Now CNET installer enabled" button

4- The download file will be downloaded and saved.

5- When you clik on CNET installer it will run few sec and crash with a dialogue box" LUA Error !"
and few lines off script ... etc

The dialogue box OK button is inactif so it stay for ever until your reset the computer or use task manager to kill the process.

Just a tip.

If you see a Direct Download Link under the download button, try that instead.
