  • It is a tutorial to download MSDN products using Internet Download Manager (IDM).

    Please follow the below tutorial and let me know what you can't understand.

    MSDN Subscription product downloads are not compatible with the Microsoft File Transfer Manager "FTM" as it is retired about 2 years ago. You can use browser based download option for minimum sized files. Because no MSDN Sub. products are resumable as the MSDN downloads has a specific time frame to download your files to your PC. Of course to overcome this is situation MSDN team are already looking for a solution and all MSDN subscribers are waiting for it. Please try the following so that you can successfully download the 6GB file from MSDN.

    Use the Internet Download Manager as it can resume the download from MSDN and it can throttle the full download speed from your ISP.

    Since MSDN downloads server link expires in 3-4 hours time you may not be able to download the ISO completely due to your slow internet speed. You can follow this step to resume the download.

    1. Once the file is successfully added into the IDM Queue start your 6GB ISO.
    2. Please stop the download around 2-3 hours time or before it returns with the "Error" in the "Status" column in IDM Queue.
    3. Right click the "6GB ISO file" in your IDM Queue and click "Refresh download address", now the IDM will open the default "Browser" and take you to the MSDN subscriptions page. Please do find your exact "6GB ISO file" and click "Download" in your MSDN Subscriptions Page. You will see "Download File Info" Dialog window. Copy the full link from the "URL" field and close this window by clicking "Cancel" in the same Diaglog box.
    4. Now go back to IDM Queue and right click the "6GB" ISO file and select "Properties" and paste the copied URL in the "Address" field.
    5. Now "Resume" the download your 6GB ISO file will resume download with this new refreshed link. 

    Please do reply back if you should have any clarifications.

    Thanks

  • Just thought I would add in here that Free Download Manager (from version 5.1.27) also now supports changing a URL.

    So just start the download in your browser, copy the URL and kick it off in FDM (cancel it in the browser)

    When it breaks after the 2 or 3 hours you can start the download again in the browser to get a new download link. Right click the failed download in FDM, select change URL and paste the new URL you got from the browser.

    Works like a charm.

    It's a pity MS expects everyone in the world who has an MSDN license to have super fast internet.

    Cheers
