Windows 7: Download Problem

    General discussion

  • I have been trying to download Win 7 from last week, but facing problem. Its not getting completed in one go. So if I try to pause it for some reason it halts endlessly showing error message as STOPPING........ , but does not stop. If try to resume later, it displays message as "Files size on server is change and need to start again."  I have tried direct link for Win7, but when I tried to install its giving error as some files are missing.


    Can anyone help?

  • you seem to need to use IE7 to download it, Ive pulled it down a few times and only with IE7 did it actually successfully complete.

  • have you tried clearing cookies? also there should be a download manager that initialises when you start the download, dont use third party download managers, as that could cause the problem. i'm not really sure what else to suggest. Mine came down in 1 go without problems once i used IE 7. If IE 7 is you browser of default check you dont have any pop up blockers or other addons running, in case one of those is causing it.

    I have the same problem . Gets to 99% and then says file corrupt, and only option is to restart entire download. Im using activex control and download manager from microsoft site installed automatically.
    Now I've got the key but the download has diasppeared. Where can I complete it from??

    quote from your page
    "Sorry, Windows 7 Beta downloads are no longer available. If your download was interrupted, you can still finish it. And, you can still register for a product key or look up the key you’ve already gotten.   "

  • Same problem here and now it is unavailable. What a waste of time and resources. Not a fan of Windows 7 now, let's see if MS can win my loyalty back from the MAC when it's released. Vista is a resource HOG but I still have to run it, although slowly.

  • I have tried clearing cookies and removing popup blocker, but no relief. I dont know why MS has made simple process of download so complex.
    They should have simply release beta software for plain download, without restriction for use of specific download manager/browser.
