calibre new version download

My calibre actual version is: 0.9.12

I have been trying to download the next versions, unfortunately, it fails to download.

It downloads aprox. 8% and then stops: "unable to read the source"


System is: Windows XP

Thank you for your help and suggestions

You are using ONLY the official download site ?
XP (using Firefox) has no problems

1) try the alternate source (link is on the download page near the button)

2) Being Careful: disable your internet security (better way would pre-approve, AKA Whitelist, the official download URL) for the download.

3)Use a wired internet connection (if you were wireless)

Your suggestions I will keep for next downloads.

Thank you
