Unfortunately, I'd say that machine is no longer suitable for development.  You'd need not only enough room to download, but to install as well.  So that could be three times the size of the download.  If it installs over the older version, that would free some up.  But there is no magic that will allow a file larger than available space to be installed.

If it is on a larger disk, you may be able to grow the partition.  Or if you have a second disk, you could mount that.  I know how frustrating partitioning can be!
