MSI Afterburner only downloading in .rar

Hey guys,

Reinstalling MSI afterburner tonight to find that the donwload off the offical site is only downloading one .rar file rather than the installation wizard, didn't have this problem before. I've tried on multiple computers and yes i did extract. Any explanation or link to a safe place where i can download v4.30 would be appreciated

thanks in advance

  1. I reckon you downloaded a non-Windows version.

    The ZIP file download from here contains a 'RAR' file which in turn contains an 'EXE' file which is the full setup routine:

    https://www.msi.com/page/afterburner

    Click the "Downloads" tab under the main banner at the top.
    Then click the first "Download Afterburner" button on the left.

    Downloaded MSI afterburner yesterday it comes in a rar file to save you on downloading more than you have too, just unpack it.

    I am having this exact problem. I was using MSI afterburner from about 6 months ago. I downloaded a new AMD driver this week, and it made my MSI run oddly. I decided to reinstall it, and now am only seeing a RAR file when I extract it. Not sure what is going on....
  5. Go to www.guru3d.com/files-get/msi-afterburner-beta-download,30.html for the download.

    Download from this link @ Guru3D it opens into a proper installer not into a RAR. Also they have Rivatuner, one for Zotac, as well as Clockblocker and several other programs for OC/GPU. - http://www.guru3d.com/files-categories/videocards-overclocking-tweaking.html
