Are you using Line 6 Updater? It is designed to download and install the update for you.

Are you trying to download the firmware flash file itself or the updater? It looks like Windows is trying to open the file as text file, regardless. You need to download and install the latest version of Line 6 Updater, and then once installed and running with the Helix connected, it will download the firmware file for you and send it to the Helix.

Ah! I'm a novice at this, and I don't even have my Helix yet (to be delivered Thursday)....I was just trying to have all my ducks in a row (files gathered) so I could hit the ground running when it arrives.

 

I'll try again after I have the unit in hand & connected, then report back.

 

A big THANKS for all the guidance!

Probably the browser opens the file instead of downloading it so you see these cryptical signs.
