I registered today to see if I can get the free 6.5/6.7 exsi.  it returned a license key and download page. but no matter what browser I use, the "Manually Download" button doesn't work.

how does one download if none of the "Manually Download" buttons don't work?

I had to use the inspect element trick to download it on Mar 8 2020. This has been broken for a very long time.

Just to add a bit more context to this.

I was getting the same issue whilst trying to download the vSphere 7 evaluation ISOs.

In my case the issue was being caused by my Ad-Blocker (Pi Hole) which was blocking requests to (at least) these sites:

  • c.evidon.com
  • s.go-mpulse.net
  • s7.addthis.com
  • api.demandbase.com

Disabling my Ad-Blocker got things working.

It's your DNS Settings.

Change to a normal DNS, not unbound, pi-hole, or DNSSEC, and it will work

Thank you!  Was sitting here forever trying to get the download button to register from 5 different browsers.  My VPN was connecting via Canada.  When I turned off my VPN, the download immediately worked.  Thanks!

Hi, its 2022 and this is still and issue. I've never seen a company **bleep** up a simple link this poorly before. Multiple browsers, different operating systems. Your site is completely broken.

@ahmedmasud  This is absolutely the correct answer and it's still an issue 3 years later.  Many kudos to you sir.
