Akamai Download Manager and MSDN RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've installed the developer preview on a machine and have noticed that the Akamai download manager does not appear to be offered on MSDN with this OS/IE version combination. This makes the process of downloading various bits of dev tooling from MSDN slightly more awkward.

    Is there any way to get it to work or is it planned to be working soon?

  • Are you using the Metro or Desktop version of IE?

    The Metro version does not allow any plug-ins or add-ins to run, so if the download manager is implemented as an ActiveX or something like that, it will not run in Metro version of IE. However, it would work in the Desktop version of IE.

  • I am using the desktop version.

    Have you successfully used the download manager in the developer preview?
