#134653 Downloads: file error and release error


I created a download page and release for my project, but neither or working correctly.

When I go to the download page by clicking on the green download button ( - the automatic download doesn't start, but clicking the direct link works.

When I try to download a file by viewing the release ( and then clicking a file to download - An error appears saying the file is unavailable, but the automatic download starts anyway. Can someone help me out with this?


  • Hi Nicholas,

    I'm not sure why this link,
    9791&filename=TodoFreelySetup.exe&a=76856980 doesn't work, but it seems incomplete.

    When I navigate from your project summary page,, click on the big green download button, then the next one, that is the link that is given. I don't get a download starting either.

    However, when I click on the Download > Browse all packages link, click on the Todo Freely - Beta 1, then the .exe file, the download starts.

    We need to investigate this. I'm handing this off to engineering for a look see.

    If you need anything else, please post a response to this request.
