hi, it seems there is a problem with downloaded file. let me give you another link
so you can download it again.
do you have your 25 digit key?
Yes, I do.
i am preparing your link
here is the download link. can you download it & install. it is a big file (520 mb) so it will take some time to fully download
When I download this file, do I have to create another CD disc in order to install it, Jerry ?
no, you don't need to create any cd or dvd . it is self-executable file. (after the download, just run it - double click- )
OH, Joy !
it will be very easy. it is not an iso file. it is exe (stand-alone self executable file)
Excellent !!! - So, would you know, why couldn't the software4students.com resellers supply me with an executable file in the first place ? - They gave up trying to help me, after hours of messing about and suggested I try Microsoft support, which is how I ended up with you........?
there are two versions. iso and exe. iso version is a little complicated . because isos are not self executable (you need to burn it on dvd to be able to work with it)
I don't know why they don't give the exe version. probably they only have the iso version.
by the way, if you have a flash drive (usb drive) or external harddisk, i recommend you to save the file on it, because you may need to use the exe file again in the future. (so you don't need to re-download it )
Ah, OK. - The download for the computer in question is not reliable, keeps falling offline. If that happens during the download, (well, it just did !) will I have to begin the download from scratch ?
if you are downloading with firefox, firefox has resume-pause capability, so it may start from the last byte.
Oh, I just realised ! - I could download it using my reliable laptop, and then put the files onto a USB Flash Drive device and install it on the Charity's computer from that, am I right ?
correct. you can download it from any computer. and then use the exe file on any computer again.
file is 524 mb. so you will need to be sure there is enough space in your flash-drive.
Brilliant ! Thank you. - If I have any kind of a problem with this, from now on, until I have it installed, am I able to get back to you on the subject, please?
yes, you can.
I will be here. you can add this page to your favorites (bookmarks)
so when you need to come back, you can open this page from your favorites.
I will be here.
Thank you, Jerry :-) - It has started downloading onto the Charity's PC (says it will be 2 + hours) - I reckon I will try it on my laptop, using a ethernet cable to the router - would that make it quicker ?
yes, it will be quicker.
OK - Off I go ! - The software was £53, because it is a charity (Samaritans) whereas it would have been hundreds, I guess, otherwise. I am that fed up with trying to get it installed that I paid your £35 myself, rather than waste any more time. I am well happy with that. Thank you for your service.Cheers ! :-)
yes, it is normally $499. you are welcome, best regards.
I will be here if something goes wrong
Thanks ! :-)
you are welcome.
Jerry, may I ask you a question, please ?
My shift is due to end in twenty minutes, when I have to go home, taking my laptop with me. Will I be able to re-connect to the link and continue the download (so far 240Mb out of 526 downloaded) or could I start from scratch with it, clicking on the link you gave me when I get home?I could leave it running on the Charity's PC, which has 3 hours 40 minutes to go (136 Mb downloaded) and then come in and install it on Saturday, though I would rather have the files safe on a Flash Drive before then, if possible, by using my laptop at home...?
otherwise, you can start again
OK, Good. thanks again, Jerry. :-)
you are welcome. best regards.
