WindowsDeveloperPreviewOnlineSetup WILL NOT DOWNLOAD RRS feed

  • Question

  • I been trying to download WindowsDeveloperPreviewOnlineSetup following these instructions..

    We are asking all participants to install the Windows Developer Preview using the download we provide to you on this site. The experience that we are providing you is different than the ISO made available on the Dev Center website, so please use this link to download and install the Windows Developer Preview. And be sure to download from the machine on which you intend to install.


    For two days (yesterday and today), it keeps going to download speed of 0kbps and just hangs there.. What's the deal?  It's not my computer, I just tried downloading stuff elsewhere...


    How would I get this to work or how would I go on about downloading the ISO as I want to install it on a partition.

    Windows 8 Developer Preview with developer tools English, 64-bit (x64)


    This is actually what I'm looking for..

  • Is there a download manager for this?

  • I guess you should get a better response if you use the chat with engineers available as part of that connect private program.

  • I couldn't download it either during the Windows Developer Preview Install Fair. It's because it uses Background Intelligent Transfer Service to download the ISO. The status of BITS is changed to High so the download is very slow. Changing the status of the BITS download job using a a BITS Manager app from High to Foreground makes it download faster but I tried about 7-8 times. Every time the download would get stuck at 55% or 78% or 62%. Just wouldn't complete. Had to give up.
