Can't Download WIN32 ZIPs

  • When I try to download any of the WIN32 ZIPs, I only get about 15 KB before the download completes and the file (of course) can't be opened.  I've had the same problem with Firefox and IE.

    • This is probably a problem with the mirror you chose.  Try a different mirror.  I just downloaded the -win32.zip file w/o trouble from the New York download area.

      I'm new to SourceForge.  How do I select a mirror?

      (I'm downloading http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/nqmacs/emacs-21.3.50.1-20040726-w32.zip?download from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=92168&package_id=97529, but I'm having the same problem with all the *win.zip URLs on that page.)

       
    • That very page, http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/nqmacs/emacs-21.3.50.1-20040726-w32.zip?, is where the mirrors are listed.  If you are having a problem downloading from all of the mirrors then I suspect you are behind some sort of firewall or Web filter which limits you.  How are you connecting to the internet?

      Maybe it's right in front of my nose, but I don't see any way of selecting a mirror on http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=92168&package_id=97529

      I am accessing at work from behind a firewall.  I'll try again from home.

      I figured out my mistake.  I was right-clicking on "emacs-21.3.50.1-20040726-w32.zip" (and other links like it) and selecting "Save Link As...".  (So I was saving the mirrors page as a ZIP!)  Once I just clicked on the link everything worked fine.
