Download Issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm running Win7/64 RC.  I went to download Expression 3 this morning, and encountered some problems:

    0) I can't download using FireFox. Period.

    1) The File Transfer Manager refuses to install on IE8/64. Period.  I get an eerror that suggests steps to resolve the problem if I'm running Windows Server 2003 or 2008.  How perfectly useless.

    2) Even if I download the MSI for FTM and installit manually, IE8/64 refuses to install the neccesary addon.

    3) When IE8/32 prompts me to allow the addon to be installed, nothing happens. I have to click the download link a 2nd time to get it to ask if I want to install the addon.

    I don't need hand-holding to download files. I am proficient enough to manage this stuff on my own.  File Transfer Manager adds NO VALUE to my MSDN experience.  In fact, it DISTRACTS me from my work. 

    Further, I don't want to use IE8. How can I make FTM work in FireFox?
