After downloading, make sure the file extension matches what you expect, and not (for instance) .html. If you downloaded an XDF, make sure the file extension is .xdf. If you downloaded an ADS, change it to ADS. Then drag and drop the file into TunerPro.

what happens when you drag and drop the individual bin file? what error do you get? Does the title bar show that the bin opened? Then try the XDF. What error?

A bin file is a bin file. A bin definition is an XDF, and an acquisition definition is either an ADS (older format) or ADX (newer format).

The TunerPro help file (far right drop down menu) covers most things.
