What is a dms file for?

I am downloading the new version and I have noticed that it downloaded two (2) files. It downloaded SketchUpPro-2020-0-362-132.dmg and it also downloaded SketchUpPro-en-dmg.dms.

I know what a dmg file is, but what is a dms file?



.dms is download management server temporary file…

it should auto delete when download ends…

unless interrupted…


I did try to download it 3 times but every time it stays a dms file.

from this page https://www.sketchup.com/download/all it works fine,
but from https://www.sketchup.com/account-setup?formstate=professional and
I get a dms file. Okay, I can rename the extension to dmg and then it works too.

Trimble, maybe you should check that out .
