  • Why can I not download Windows 7 beta over Windows Vista using google chrome?

    I have been trying very hard to download Windows 7 beta onto one of my Vista Machines using google chrome as my search engine. Windows 7 beta simply will not download onto this particular machine, even though the PC is well above the specifications required to run Windows 7 beta without a problem. When I try and download it though; using google chrome, (which I use on this particular Vista PC) The Windows 7 operating system will not download at all

      It doesn't work with Firefox either - Microsoft are improving, but they still insist on IE for a decent chunk of their web presence.

      FYI, Chrome is not a search engine.

        It all depends where you are downloading it from but from what I've seen, when you try to get it from the MS site it uses an ActiveX which is a Download manager.
        Mozilla don't support ActiveX that's why it doesn't work with Firefox.

        Same apply to the other browsers. IE is the only one that supports them.

          In all fairness, the Akamai (spl) download manager isn't all that bad. Just a bit poor that MS force you to use that rather than just... downloading the file normally
