I'm a faculty member at Santa Rosa Jr. College and a long time member of MSDNAA. I have no idea where exactly where to post this so I'll just take a stab at it and someone can tell me where to repost if necessary. I have been trying for days now to download
and install any of the Windows server products from MSDNAA - 2003 Standard, 2003 Enterprise, or any of the available flavors of Server 2008. Every time the download is completed, the download/installer client claims that it's checking the .SDC file CRC, but
the process gets no CPU time and there is no disk activity at all. I left one of them (2003 Enterprise) running for over 24 hours and the status bar never changed from the left hand corner. The problem seems to be particular to those files that are encrypted
in the .SDC format as I have d/l other MS products and have not experienced this problem. I don't necessarily expect any help on this, although it is compromising some of my educational objectives (ones that I can work around with non-MS products if I have
to). But I hope that if there are any MS folks monitoring this forum, you'll pass on the information her to those who manage these things. Thanks! Sean
Today i tried to download Windows 7 and had exactly the same problem. Restarting or selecting different location didn't help. I downloaded over 10 different files this year and everything worked as it should. I tried to download the file from Faculty of
EE & Computing in Zagreb, Croatia.
