Can't Download Sample

    Question

  • I haven't been able to download the sample pack (Windows 8 Developer Preview Metro style app samples) located at http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/Windows-Developer-Preview-6b53adbb.  Have tried to download a number of times over the past few weeks.   Other downloads from the code.msdn.microsoft.com site are successful, but this one fails at about 7%.

  • Hey Jeff,

    Sounds like a problem with your machine.

    Are you using a proxy in your environment?

    Have you tried different machines?

    Are you using IE 10 (Desktop ver) on a developer preview machine?

  • Jeff,

    I've tried from 3 different computers running Windows 7, IE 9 or Firefox 9.  Seems to fail at 22%.  I was able to download the file just now from a computer located outside my network, so the problem must be on my end.  Will try to check with my ISP.

    Thanks for looking into this.

    Jeff
