      Bug in Internet Explorer 11 results in a .jar being renamed to .zip when downloaded. So, user guide needs a note/caveat that installation from .zip works the same way as from .jar, but I suspect double-clicking the file won't work unless it's renamed.

      Commandline invocation - `java -jar jboss-devstudio*.zip` - should still work, however.

    Description

      When user downloads standalone installer from

      https://www.jboss.org/products/devstudio.html

      jar is automatically renamed to zip. This leads to massive confusion when trying to install JBDS.

      A hint in installation guide would be worth it here.
