Microsoft Download Manager

Posted: 01-24-2009, 12:09 AM
On my Vista Ultimate laptop , I was using Microsoft Download Manager to
bring down some large files , but I had to leave so I suspended all queued
files and shut-down Windows.

Now I can't figure out how to restart the Download Manager. Where does it
live ?

Thanks.

Hi,

Generally this is:
C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files\TransferMgr.exe

You should find it here: C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files\TransferMgr.exe

When you start transfer manager again click the 'options' button and you
will see a section marked 'application startup.' In this section you should
see an option to 'place application shortcut on desktop' If you enable this
by clicking in the box to the left of the option, you will have a shortcut
icon placed on your desktop. It makes life a lot easier. All you then need
do is click the shortcut, highlight your download in the transfer manager
and click resume.

John I've just tried to open TransferMgr.exe by clicking on it and I too
have got the same result, i.e. it will not open. I was going to suggest
trying to open it by right clicking on the file and selecting 'run as
administrator' but, it appears that that too doesn't work. Neither does the
link on the start menu.

The only thing I can suggest is that you go back to the Microsoft site and
start the download again. Unfortunately you will have lost the files you
already started downloading but it appears that there is definitely
something wrong with the application .exe file.

When you go back to the Microsoft site and restart the download, the
transfer manager should appear again. When it does I suggest that you go to
the options and select to 'put an icon on the desktop' as i described in my
previous post. At least then you will have an icon available on your desktop
if you need to suspend any of the current or future download.

I know its a pain but I've done it myself and, in the end, the easiest
option is to start from scratch again.
