  • I had the same issue for the last 3 days.  I determined the link was good, the problem was with the distribution node [] that my requests were going to. 

    To fix it, I queried another external DNS server and received the IP of a different node [] that services those requests.  After overriding my hosts file with that IP, I was able to get my download.

  • This problem extends to all the Dec CU links for MOPS 2007 and the Oct 2011 CU links don't work either.

    Microsoft: any word on when these will be available?
