Akamai Downloader Downloading Issues with IE 11 on Windows 8.1 64bit RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have been facing lot Issues while downloading ISOs from Microsoft Sites like; www.technet.microsoft.com where the downloading starts automatically through Akamai Downloader.

    After sometime, the download will be PAUSED. When it is tried to continue, it would continue right from beginning loosing already downloaded content and wasting the time and energy.

    Along with Windows 8.1, IE 11 is installed as a default browser.

    Please, let me know if any other alternate method(s) is/are there to download especially from Microsoft sites.

    Regards,

    Venkat.KL

  • Hi,

    According to your description, this should be Akamai downloader problem, not Windows.

    If you need to download something from microsoft, why not using IE directly?
