First off, I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but I can't find another one that suits it better. Anyway...

I can't download this file, or anything from download.microsoft.com for that matter. I've had this problem in the past, but it is now coming back to haunt me. I'm considering just having a friend burn the express edition to CD for me, but that wouldn't fix the problem, would it Just to let you know, I've done some checking, and it's not an IPv6 or proxy error. My connection is just acting like the server doesn't exist at all. Does anyone have an idea for a fix (I'm using Firefox 2.0, but IE isn't working either.)

There might be a problem with your version of Internet Explorer, What version are you using If you are using one of the IE7 betas or RC's then uninstall it and install the full version of IE7.

This has happened to me also on an old computer. You need to make sure that you haven't in-advertently set your security settings to high. This will block the certificates and cookies etc, that the microsoft site needs in order for the download pages to function correctly.

There's the thing, though...I can't download anything from Microsoft.

And to Peter: I'll try that.

Did you see if anything here works for you http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/render.aspx displaylang=en&content=help If not there should be a "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page that will let you send email to the download team.

Thanks

Gracias! I'll get right on that. I've been trying everything from having a friend download/transfer the file to me to having a CD burnt. I still can't figure out why I can't download from MS. So strange...

Well, it's been a while since I've tried to download anything off of the MS servers, and I've changed a lot of things about my connection. However, I still cannot obtain a working connection to these servers. I happen to have a copy of XNA that someone downloaded for me and sent over, but no one is too crazy about downloading VSE for me. I have VS Pro and wish I could use it with XNA, but alas; no. Does anyone have any idea what is going on with my connection I've tried everything, from lowering every security setting to the minimum, turning off my firewalls and other security applications, setting both Firefox (2.0.0.2) and IE (I don't know how to check the version, but Windows Update gave me a new version yesterday.) to minimum safety--I even changed my router's settings to specifically allow anything from "download.microsoft.com".

Extra info: I've gotten a new PC since the original post...But the same problem persists. The old (clunker) PC was an HP (Built like rocks.) running XP Home with a bunch of registry hacks and SP2. This one is a Dell (Sucks...) running XP Pro and with no registry hacks whatsoever and SP2. Also, this PC has never obtained a virus in the months I've have it--So my security setup is working, I guess.
