    Try that one. 

    Does "on-line" help content work properly for you?

    "I want to download tutorials and refrences from MSDN libary but can't seem to I tried to do it though Visual Studio (Went to manage help settings>install content from online). "

    That is not how you install tutorials.  Most of the tutorials that I have downloaded from the MSDN library have their own installers.  Many are self-extracting ZIP files.
