I'm attempting to download the student edition of 3ds Max 2011 from Autodesk's student portal using my account, but every time the download starts it'll immediately fail due to "source file could not be read" after anywhere between five seconds and one minute of downloading.
This occurs in Firefox, Chrome and IE. I suspect the Autodesk download server is freaking out and resetting connections, but I have no idea. Is there a download mirror I could use in the meantime?
I have manually generated Autodesk 3DS Max 2011 version for your convenience. Please note that the links are valid only for 72 hours.
Prior to download, please check your system for and disable any of the following:
# Firewall - These are designed to stop downloads from non-approved sites.
# Anti-Virus Programs - These will try to stop or scan a download. It may cause the download to be corrupt or damaged.
# Download Monitors - Programs such as GoZilla! and NetZip are not compatible with our server and will sometimes block or stop downloads.
# Screen Savers - In some instances, screen savers can interfere with the download process. If you have a screen saver that is starting while you are downloading, please disable it temporarily until your download is complete.
