Links to download Trial Versions of VS Studio Pro 2010 broken: IIS errors RRS feed

  • Question

  • Win 32 Vista Ultimate, VS 2010 Studio Pro Trial version installed, IE9 release browser with currently all security and privacy settings set as "low" as possible. All recent Win Vista patches and updates installed, including those released April 13, 2011.

    MSSE security software in use for firewall, and internet security. Note: this software development machine is NOT used as a server: IIS is installed, to my knowledge, only as part of the VS 2010 Pro Trial installation.

    The errors reported here may be a result of the issues reported on: "QuestionCannot Extend Trial period of VS 2010, cannot Uninstall !" :

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vssetup/thread/12a5148a-567d-442b-a009-7282ce184020/

    however, I think these errors are important enough to be posted as a separate incident.

    The web page http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us/try which Andrew Wu recently referred me to to download an "iso" of VS Studio Pro 2010 Trial: has two options: one to download the iso, 2.10 gigabytes, or to download the web installer:

    Both the links that trigger these downloads lead to a IIS failure page with the following error response:

    "HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found
    The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable."

    For the download the ISO error the details are:

    Module IIS Web Core
    Notification
    MapRequestHandler
    Handler
    StaticFile
    Error Code 0x80070002
    Requested URL

    And the download the Web Installer error, the details are:

All replies

  • Did you try this in your office? Have you tried to open the site in another network environment?

     

    Since I could access to the download site correctly(both from home and my office), I think this issue should be related with your network environment, rather than the website itself.

     

    Moreover, the website does not related with the IIS in your local computer. For error http 404, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_404

     

    I think you can contact your IT department to resolve this issue.

  • Hi Jennifer, thanks for your reply !

    As I made clear in the related post: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vssetup/thread/12a5148a-567d-442b-a009-7282ce184020/

    This is a single-user only machine for software development only. It is not on a network, by design, but hooked up directly to an ADSL modem with its own account with its ISP.

    I agree with you that a IIs error is very baffling here, given this machine is NOT a server, as I clearly state in my first post here.

    Except for me, there is no IT department here :)

    thanks, Bill

  • Hi Bill,

    I test the link in your post, and I also can open it correctly with no error, even with my mobile. Can you change to another network to try it again? This sounds more likely some errors with your internet connections, not the MS website. Contact your ISP provider to check if they blocked the MS site.

    Hope this info helps.

  • Hi Wbloodcc,

    Thanks for your response, but this machine is not on a network or behind some LAN firewall, as clearly stated above, and I can guarantee you my ISP has not blocked any MS site.

    I shifted this topic to another, more appropriate, forum where there has been some response from MS. If you really want to know more "bloody details" :

    http://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/658596/unable-to-extend-or-uninstall-vs-2010-pro-trial-version

    At the above link you can read the "entertaining" (scary ?) story of how I was able to install Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate Trial over the current not-removable VS Studio 2010 Pro Trial, in spite of many components of it being removed per the "manual removal instructions" recommended on this thread (those instructions, by the way, are clearly out of date).

    Again, thanks for taking your time to help !

    best, Bill

  • Hi Bill,

    Maybe you've misunderstood the meaning of network in my previous post. It not only means the connection to the LAN, but also the connection to the Internet directly by the ADSL.

    If this is a desktop computer, you can take your laptop, go outside and find another connection that allow you to log on Internet. I'm sure you'll find that the download/register site is available and can open correctly.

  • Hi Wbloodcc,

    Thanks for your response, but I clearly understood your first comments, and they are not relevant to this situation.

    This computer, as stated, clearly, in my reply to Jennifer, is already connected directly to the Internet by ADSL modem, not a router, which also excludes the possibility of a LAN

    This issue is now more fully responded to on : I use the word "responded to" as a euphemism for "swept under the rug," by the way, at:

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vssetup/thread/12a5148a-567d-442b-a009-7282ce184020/

    As, also, mentioned before.

    There is a serious Bug here either with an interaction of the OS or browser, or whatever, with IIS.

    Meanwhile I've cancelled my purchase of VS Studio 2010 Pro, and ... blechhh ... decided I have no choice to move to Mono.

    thanks, Bill
