Doesn't work. I can double click all over the place and it stays a 
bridge. The help file says to doubleclick, you say to double click, 
but nothing happens.

I have version downloaded.

Nil there also.

Nil there.

I forgot to say I used 1 ampere of load current.

Not on what I downloaded. Maybe I downloaded something that 
doesn't work? Is there another file or version other than
