If you download it to the desktop, you'll need to use the Application Loader in the Desktop Manager to load it.

In addition, you may need to unzip the file first and place in regular folder before using the DM. Sometimes the App loader doesn't see the zipped files.

Thats why I prefer downloading OTA.
