Same here when using IE, but then I tried SmartFTP with pasv mode turned

IE was silently updated to prevent D compiler downloads, because the company behind it is beginning to recognize that C# is facing obsoletion due to the growing popularity of D. More seriously - my computer repeated the problem mentioned (ftp timeout).

I think Walter's seen the light. D is too powerful a tool to be given to the kind of people who still use IE.

I guess you say this because you like linux/unix or some other useless (in my
opinion) crap, but if you done some html/css/javascript you would know that
although poor support of web standarts it provides, IE is still the best browser
currently. No browser fully supports the web standards. Firefox is struggling to
fight IE, but it is light years away. I see they've done alot of good work since
mozilla/netscape browsers but it is stull unable to display simple pages. Opera
is the only browser that I think has any future. But it is still behind IE (i've
not seen opera 8). I mean Firefox will not die but it will always be behind
Opera and IE (I hope opposite of course). The bad thing is Opera is not free,
firefox is free but extremely slow, resources consuming and poor web standarts
support...

Good suggestion, but I use Firefox. :) I might try the FTP-client method. Lars Ivar

Hello,
The download didn't work for me either. I can't get the D compiler but the C/C++
compiler can be downloaded from download.com

I tried a number of methods and all of them failed EXCEPT using the command-line ftp tool in Windows. Don't ask me why it works when other FTP client's don't, but there ya go. I'm too lazy to grab the session logs and see what's actually going wrong right now. Sean

I've had no troubles with Opera, EmFTP, or DOpus. IE has failed though. -- Derek Melbourne, Australia 7/04/2005 10:48:16 AM

I was able to turn off the 'Passive FTP' switch w/ IE 6 and download it that way. I had to use ftp on linux, wget wouldn't work because the server would go into PASV mode (can't control that w/ wget). Hmmm, I wonder if the firewall rules changed on the digital mars end of things maybe? - Dave
