Question

Tried to download the ISO image of Windows 8 Developer Preview with developer tools English, 64-bit (x64) thru this web: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/apps/br229516/

but the download size is 0kb and if I tried to burn to a CD, it will say the file is corrupted.

I really hope I can download the Windows 8 Developer Preview with developer tools, and not just the Windows 8 Developer Preview. Because I need VS11 and the rest to work on my upcoming projects.

Any help?


Any help would be appreciated ^^ Regards, forsakenedsj

Hello forsakenedsj,

Something has corrupted your download.
The size should be:
(4.8 GB)

From the website:
How to install the Windows 8 Developer Preview from an ISO image

The Windows 8 Developer Preview is delivered as an .iso image that must be converted into installation media stored on a DVD or a USB flash drive. On Windows 7, the easiest way to convert this file is to use Windows Disc Image Burner. On Windows XP and Windows Vista, a third-party program is required to convert an .iso file into installable media—and DVD burning software often includes this capability.

Note: The .iso file that contains the developer tools requires a large capacity DVD called a DVD-9, as well as a DVD burner that can handle dual-layer (DL) DVDs. Most modern burners should be able to handle this format.

Using a download manager might help to keep it from getting corrupted.

Thanks,

Wait till tomorrow when the consumer preview releases. No reason to install an OS that'll be outdated in a few hours.

Hello Marilyn,

Is rather weird whereby I click that download link, it just download the ISO image within 1 sec with the size of 0kb. We have to download the ISO first before we can burn it right... So if ISO is 0kb there's nothing I can do?
