Thank you for writing us.

Do you have the latest version of Download Express (1.6 SR1)?
Please open the Options dialog, Integration page. Check the "Use alternative integration method", then click the OK button.
Then please open your ftp server folder in the Internet Explorer and double-click the file you want to download.
Please write us about the result. Thank you.

Patrik,

Thank you for your file.
Now I see that this is a .torrent file.
It is just a control file for downloading using the bittorrent protocol. You need and a client application which supports the bittorrent protocol to download these movies.
This .torrent file contains file name info, and the url of a bittorrent "tracker" that in turn will point your client to other computers that are seeding the actual files you desire.

Search for "bittorrent" or "bittorrent client" at Google.com for more info.

Sincerely,
Alexander
