Currently Being ModeratedOct 20, 2010 11:16 PM (in response to hardtop101)DLing from another PC isn't a bad idea.
GOod job on trying a different browser, but I'm thinking FIrefox wont' make any difference, either.
Are you using one of those USB dongles for internet access? Lots of Australian folks have been having problems getting the itunes DL using them.
If you're NOT using one of those dongles, and you have a cable modem with attached router, try plugging your PC directly into the cable modem.
Bypass the router, in other words.
If you have a friend that is using the latest itunes, you could get the download from them and put it on a USB stick or burn a CD.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 20, 2010 11:30 PM (in response to Katrina S.)Cheers Katrina. I have a wireless n router and wireless card with a 1.5Mbps broadband connection which is not lightling but is fairly quick. I get the 99% in 7 minutes. Router is too far from my desktop to hardwire if I can avoid it. I got a message from my browser saying the provider is not verified! and when I tried to run the app I get 'not a valid Win32 app'?Dell Vostro 430, Windows 7, x64
Currently Being ModeratedOct 21, 2010 12:23 PM (in response to hardtop101)Yep, that's been seen with other folks,and not just in Australia!
Since switching browsers didn't get you anywhere, I suspect it's some obscure setting in the router.
This is one example
It might just be easier to ask a friend to download it for you...if you can't move the PC to bypass the router.iMac 10.5/ Win 7/WinXP, Windows 7, external hard drive, color U2 iPod, 1G shuffle, 2nd gen Nano
Currently Being ModeratedOct 21, 2010 5:39 PM (in response to Katrina S.)Although my browser indicates 99% the file size on disk is 72.3 MB (75,837,560 bytes)so it is difficult to determine whether it is the whole file. I have tried to run it but get the whole 'this is not a valid win32 app'. Funny i also downloaded java for x64 and I get the same messages. Thanks for the link. I will have a look.Dell Vostro 430, Windows 7, x64

Check the MTU settings between the router and your PC's wireless card - somebody posted that was causing this problem, on some other forum.
As far as I know, here on AD nobody has ever gone to the trouble of figuring out the router setting, they just got the download from another network or a friend. Small music file downloads seem to work OK even with this problem but larger downloads don't.iMac 10.5/ Win 7/WinXP, Windows 7, external hard drive, color U2 iPod, 1G shuffle, 2nd gen Nano
