The password is case-sensitive: please check your CAPS LOCK key to make
sure you don't have caps inadvertently enabled, and remove any extra
spaces before or after the username and/or password. Also, due to heavy
web traffic, the download area may be temporarily inaccessible - simply
try again after a few hours. If the problem persists, you may be trying
to log in too many weeks after your order (we change the passwords
regularly for security reasons): in that case, please contact
us to obtain a new password.
I can't download my hypnosis Ebooks, even
if the password has been accepted.
A: There are different solutions:
1. Your internet browser may be trying to
open the Ebook instead of downloading it.
If your browser doesn't give you the
choice, you should right-click
on the Download link, select "Save as..." and browse to a convenient
location in your hard disk.
If the download process doesn't start, there might be a broken link:
while the Underwords Ebooks are available from our own website, some
bonus manuscripts are hosted by external providers - please contact
us if you find a broken link.
If the download process stops halfway, you may have a slow internet
connection, and/or the Ebook may have a large size due to pictures or
other embedded data. In this case, you may want to try again or
use a free download manager such as Flashget (www.flashget.com).
Due to heavy web traffic, the download area may be temporarily
inaccessible - simply try again later. If the problem persists, please contact
downloaded my hypnosis Ebooks but can't open them.
A: There are different solutions:
1. Some Ebooks are
compressed into a single package (i.e. with
a .zip or .rar extension)
and require the free software Winzip or WinRar
to be unpacked. The necessary software can be downloaded for free at winzip.com or winrar.com.
All our Ebooks are in PDF format: hence, they require the free software
Adobe Acrobat Reader. Make sure that you have a recent version of
Acrobat, and that the software is properly installed in your computer.
If you don't have it, the latest version can be downloaded at no cost
by clicking on the logo below.
3. If you already have working versions of
the necessary software, please try to download the Ebook
again, since the download process may occasionally
corrupt a file.
4. When applicable, make sure you are typing your opening
password correctly. The password is case-sensitive: please
check your CAPS LOCK key to make sure you don't
have caps inadvertently enabled, and remove any
extra spaces before or after the password.

may have a different extension (for example .exe for self-contained
