Either that or you could purchase a program like "Getrite" which
allows download resuming, or you could upgrade to a cable modem. A
23Meg file is quite a task to download in one session for a 56K phone
line connection, I would imagine an update on CD would be an
expensive process and SF probably wants to hear some feedback, before
committing to that.

Ah, but I live in NYC, home of the artful political deal. So, we will
be blessed with cable modems about the time when the sun engulfs the
earth, about six million years, give or take a few centuries. In my
neighborhood, DSL is a joke as is Verizon. Thus,....

I rarely have problems downloading large files (Win 2K SP 1 = 83 MBs)
but this Vegas file has proven to be a problem. I suppose it is time
to fork out a few dollars for a download utility. Still, SF will
eventually produce Vegas CDs for those newly purchasing 2.x. I do not
think it would be much of a problem for them to burn a few extra CDs
for
those who need them.

Stephen, I also had trouble downloading the pre release 2.0b when it
was posted,10 times it failed and never had trouble with large files
before either. I also tried the programs "Getrite and Gozilla"
neither worked. Then a couple weeks ago I tried a straight download
again and it worked fine. I'm guessing maybe high demand on SF
server? I would suggest just keep trying.

How about just making multiple chunks for download...3 megs a
piece...come on we are ALL used to doing this

Yeah, I finally got a chance to try and download it, and you're
right, Getrite does not work on it, I guess this is suppose to be a
new and improved download method. I guess they're trying to give us
56K modem users a message. Well, I hope this installs better than it
downloads now.

I wish I could get the download to start!

I'm able to download every other file (vidcap, manuals, release
notes), but after accepting my serial number, instead of getting a
file named maybe "vegasvideo20b.exe", I get "3rdparty.htm", a bare-
bones copy of the download web page itself!

That's what I got, when I tried to download it using "Getrite". What
are you using for your internet browser? I used internet explorer 5
and was able to download it with no problems, I had to just keep my
fingers crossed that the download didn't get interupted, where I
would have to start over. When you use "Getrite" and
hold "Cnrtl+Alt" it is suppose to automatically load what ever link
you click on and then download with the resume and pause options
available in getrite, but instead I got that "3rd party" file also.
You think someone at SF would address this issue. Instead they
implemented a new downloading feature without testing it. Is this
suppose to be some kind of security technique or just another way to
inconvenience users? Dave Hill, any answers to why so many people
are having problems with this...a note posted saying you must
download using Internet Explorer 5 and you can't use any 3rd party
software like "Getrite" or "Gozilla" would be nice.

I finally got the file, although it wasn't an obvious method.
I'm using IE 5.50.4522.1800 on Win98SE.

1) After submitting the serial number, I was prompted with,
approximately, download "3rdparty.asp?dlid=5 from
www.sonicfoundry.com?" - I checked "open this file from its current
location" and clicked OK.

2) Then I got download "3rdParty.asp from www.sonicfoundry.com"? -
again I checked "open this file from its current location" and
clicked OK.

3) Finally I got download "vegasvideo20b.exe from
www.sonicfoundry.com"?, whereupon I checked "Save this program to
disk", clicked OK, and the download proceeded.

I'm glad I won't have to go through that again (at least any time
soon ;-).
