    Default Unable to download ISO file

    i have a new computer coming this week and will want to install Bibleworks on it. I tried to download the ISO file and it failed after about 3 gb. I now get a message that it is not available as too many people have downloaded it. What can I do?

    First of all, use a download manager that has the ability to recover from a failure and successfully download the entire ISO. I use Free Download Manager: https://www.freedownloadmanager.org/
    I recomment that you test it and learn how to use it by downloading some other programs, even if you don't need them.

    The ISO is not available sometimes. So far it has always become available again after a while.

    Thank you John. It is still not available, but how to I get the right url to enter into the download manager. When I click on the link on the Bibleworks page it takes me to google drive page. If I use that url it just downloads a small file. Thank you for your help.

    This is the procedure that I followed: downloaded and installed Free Download Manager. Next also installed the Free Download Manager extension for Chrome. Set FDM to automatically catch downloads from browsers and tested that it was doing so. Used Chrome to go to the BW ISO site and started the download of the ISO and FDM took over. The download progress can be viewed in FDM.

    I also sent you a private message.

    Default Stopped at 58%

    I used extreme download manager and all went well until about 8 hours later it finally was at 58% and quit. I once again am waiting for the file to be available again.

    Default Cannot download Win BW10 with Free Download Manager

    Please help...

    The URL I get on the BW download page for the Windows version of BW10 is:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ezW...PdHUb18kB/edit

    When I paste this into the "Drag and Drop" pane in Free Download Manager, it downloads a 66.3 kB html file. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks!

    Bob

    What you downloaded is a copy of the webpage that you go to to download the file. It is not a link to the ISO itself.

    I suggest that you install the FreeDownloadManager Extension into the Chrome browser. This is the link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/s...nager?hl=en-US Then make sure that the extension is enabled. You can check that by entering chrome://extensions in the Chrome browser address bar.

    Then open the FDM program itself,then settings.
    Make sure that Browser Integration, Chrome is checked.
    Make sure that Using the Alt key, Don/t catch downloads when Alt is pressed is selected. (Or reworded, automatically catch all downloads.)
    Keep FDM open.
    Go to the BW homepage in Chrome. Go to the Downloads section. Click on the ISO file, "Click here." It will open the download page on Google Drive. Click on download. A new page about viruses may popup. Click again on Download. In the FDM program you will see a line for the BW10_rev7.iso download and a larger window at the bottom. They inform you about the download and the location where the downloaded file is stored.

    Default Thank you ... not sure it worked as intended ...

    Dear John (I'm assuming that's your name :-),

    Thank you for the detailed help on using FDM to download ... I tried it the other night, and the Google site was clogged up, but just tried again and I was able to start a download from the BW site. A couple differences from what you described, however:

    1) Under the URL you provided…
    chrome://extensions
    …there were no extensions. Apparently Google moved them to the Chrome Web Store, and I found the FDM extension by searching for it there.
    2) The downloading file does not appear in the FDM window, but in Chrome, like it would without FDM, as shown below.

    Also, if FDM is supposed to speed things up, it does not seem to be the case here. Maybe I did something incorrectly? I just tried to repeat it, and the Google Drive is back to it’s old tricks, not allowing downloads.
    Let me know your thoughts…

    Thank you,

    Bob
