I just spent an hour downloading the 2+ gig of files for the seven download, i used the links provided on the microsoft store site that i was lead to after paying.
There were two options for a 32 bit install, one was an iso, one was not, i went with the not iso first. There were three parts to download, the first part being the largest at a little over 2 gig. The rest were quite small.
I downloaded all three to my desktop which is practically empty after all my backing up in preparation for my new OS. The first two files are .box files, ive never hear of it, but oh well, Im sure the .exe knows whats going on, but apparently not. I click mr .exe and he tells me "The application cannot find one of its required files, possible because it was unable to create it in the folder. Please make sure that the folder in which this application was downloaded is acessible and not read-only."
Sigh. A bit of google brings me very little help, i found a few other with this same issue but the responses they got were no help, things like re-download etc, the guy responded saying he had DL three times and the same thing, i dont know about him but i havnt got time to download this three times and fail.
I am downloading the iso as we speak but since its capped at 1 MB/s i still have 30 mins to go. Hopefully ill have better luck with an iso, but it seems kind of silly to me that the other files do not work properly.
Can anyone shed any light on my situation with the exe/box files?
