Am I doing something wrong, or is there a problem with the software? I didn't see anything in the forums about anyone else having this problem, but apologies if this has been addressed before.
"I'm running Windows 7, 64 bit, second service pack"
maybe it's because you installed a service pack that has not been released ????
it worked fine for me with win 7 64 bit SP1.
there is no such thing as win 7 SP2
I use internet download manager - no issues with that either, so I@m sure a vanilla download via browser will work just as well. what browser are you using ?
Windows 7 SP2 release date
Just as new versions of Windows come every two to three years - "we think somewhere between 24 and 36 months between releases is about right," says Windows senior VP Steven Sinofsky - service packs come in between, every 12 to 18 months.
Windows 7 went on sale in late October 2009 and SP1 came out in late February this year (exactly 16 months later). Microsoft also tries to get the latest service pack for the previous version of Windows out before the new operating system (the timing means stability and performance fixes that have been developed and tested as part of the next version can be ported back to the previous code base where possible).
