Howcome I can't download the trial off of the website?

I downloaded the akami since it asked me to do so, and when the downloading begins, it right away says it's completed.

 

When I check the folder, 10kb size file is created and very surprisingly not working.

 

Help?

See this thread: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-2012/Today-all-day-long-i-coud-not-load-the-2012-trial-version...

 

Apparently, the workaround is to use Opera browser to avoid the silly download manager stuff.

Thanks, but I actually just reinstalled it after uninstalling it clean, and it worked.

With IE that is. I actually tried with firefox before I uninstalled it but it has same issue.

 

Anyway, thanks for your help

I had every browser I tried (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) fail except Opera. They all tried to use the nasty unreliable Akamai download manager, but Opera didn't. My experiences are here.
