What software ?

I've just tested downloading Windows 7 RC without any problems AND I'M ALREADY RUNNING WINDOWS 7 RC!

So, I reckon there's some component for downloading that you have yet to install.

using XP. There is an activex downloader that needs to be installed. Does the user account have sufficient privelages. Try turning off UAC. If that doesn't work try this.

1. Go to Start, All programs, Accessories, then right click command prompt and click Run as Administrator.

2. Once the command prompt opens type this command and press enter.

net user administrator /active:yes

3. This command will enable the hidden Administrator account in Windows Vista. Log off your account and log on as the Administrator.

4. Try installing the activex control.
