This has been happening since at least Saturday, and others have reported this as well (in the regular Hypervisor forums).
Neither the "manually download" nor the "Download Manager" links do anything.
I've tried 6 different computers (Windows XP and Windows 7 Home and Windows 7 Enterprise), 4 different web browsers (IE10, IE11, Firefox, chrome), and 3 different ISP (Verizon FIOS, Road Runner, and whoever supplies our Corporate LAN--AT&T or something).
I'm not sure VMware is even aware that there's an issue.
I said you before
please register your new account and u will be able to download
I tried registering for a new account as suggested - no difference. It still does not work.
With all due respect, why is VMware not interested in resolving the problem? You are asking us to jump through all sorts of hoops trying to get this to work - different computers, different ISP's, no registering with different accounts. None of the suggestions have working and quite frankly, this is eroding my confidence in VMware. Such solid products for so long, but can't or aren't interested in fixing an issue with your web site affecting dozens of your customers. (In actuality, I'd guess there are probably hundreds of users having this problem -- we're just the couple dozen making enough extra effort to login to the community to report the issues.)
Having us running in circles and seeming unwilling to escalate the issue to whatever VMware team that runs the web site is very frustrating.
had the same problem. tried several browsers and computers eventually it worked on windows 7 IE. now I have the same problem with vCentre Converter ... there is no link to download it just says:
Thank you for registering VMware vCenter Converter Standalone.
Your download information can be found below. If you have questions or need support, visit the VMware Technology Network for product documentation, knowledge bases and other resources, or contact your local authorized VMware partner. Support is also available on a per-incident basis through VMware Sales at 1-877-4VMWARE.
Did anyone work out how to download?
I reviewed the source and picked out the ISO URL and finally got it downloaded.
1. View source on the page with the download button.
And you have to do all that on the same window you logged in with by pasting the url into the address bar.
I have also been able to do this.
Well done Shanon and many thanks.
I also contacted VMware support and was asked to try chrome, I did, it did not work.
If we use this software in anger then obviously the installation software, will be backed up, etc.
But. . .
It's kind of hard to start my sales pitch with the following:
I installed it and . . . "
I don't know if this affects anybody else but I've been tearing my hair out and getting frustrated with the same issues described here.
My solution and fix was that I run a Pi-Hole (network ad blocker) on my home network. Bypassing the blocking has allowed me to start downloads.
thanks but isnt working for me, if I grab the url from the source, then I get an errors "invalid http response" from chrome, I tried the python script and it spits this out.
I wonder if this is deliberate by VM, and those large corporates with many licenses have a working download page instead.
