MSDN downloading on Vista

Let’s say you are one of the gifted persons to have MSDN access.

Let’s say you use Vista 64-bit (I don’t know if the problem occurs on 32-bit).

Let’s say you want to download something from MSDN with Microsoft File Transfer Manager.

And it does not work.

Well use this workaround:

First: download the File Transfer Manager from here.

Download and install the MSI. The default path is c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft File Transfer Manager”. Remember this.

Then use Firefox to go to the MSDN website, start a download, and it will prompt you to do something with the default.aspx. Well open that file with the File Transfer Manager. And it works!

Woei!
