    Are there any download managers that integrate into IE that allows RESUME support for downloads?

    I am trying to download AIK from Microsoft website, but it won't allow copy and paste of URL into a download manager. It's one of those downloads that you click on and IE only recognises once it's clicked and begins to download.

    But the problem is that in IE if the download breaks, I have to start all over again. :'(

    Any solution?

    IE´s integrated downloader supports resumes. If the download is paused or interrupted, it can resume it from the same point. So does the downloader integrated in Firefox.

    Internet Download Manager can also be used with either browser.

    Take a look at this, it's especially for downloading from Microsoft sites and you can pause and resume, etc.

    I am using Vista and latest IE. But when the download stalls and disconnects, I have to start from 0 and it does NOT resume.

    So why do you say IE resumes downloads when it doesn;t?:blink:

    And IDM doesn't work on all webpages. Some webpages need you to actually click on the link before it can download and a copy and paste of link won't work. Not sure why some webpages do that, very annoying :(

    Here is one example:

    www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=10333

    Download Accelerator Plus lets you resume downloads which don't support resuming:

    Did you validate before clicking the download link? I haven't tried it, since I won't be wasting my time with it (validating and all that), but I did download it in the past; and recently downloaded some programs from Microsoft, the same way WAIK is available to download.

    I got no issues before.

    I downloaded it with FDM, if it makes any difference.

    If it still doesn't work, for whatever reason, then you could try and see if you could can find a direct download link at Softpedia/similar website.

    By the way, does anyone know if Microsoft Download Manager is upgraded via Windows Update?

    I haven't even used DAP for many years, I just remembered that DAP could resume from downloads which don't support it.

    As for this file, I don't know of any other download managers which might be able to resume the download.

    I gave Microsoft Download Manager a try, and I never realized it was so basic. I'd expect to be able to create download groups, for example.

    Wouldn't you consider such functionality a basic thing?

    I had not problem resuming the download with FlashGet, so shouldn't be an issue for any download manager with resume. Don't know why you had problems with DAP.

    You're right, it doesn't work. Never would have thought that, a MS download manager that doesn't work with an MS download....

    I can confirm, however, that DownThemAll! with Firefox does a fabulous job on that download.

    Talkin´about free stuff,LeechGet is now abandoned and therefore free & unleashed ( 8 simultaneous downloads...).It´s faster than browser´s native downloaders :

    " LeechGet is a download manager that uses a very nice, modern, Microsoft Outlook-like user interface and seamlessly integrates into Internet Explorer, allowing you to easily start and manage your downloads.

    In addition, LeechGet provides many features, such a automatic downloading, resume of broken downloads, a download timer, automatic hang-up and shutdown and more. A built-in web parser lets you download complete website with all images and scripts in no time. LeechGet also provides a history of your downloaded files, sorted by day, week and month. Additional features include a file drop icon, a speed monitor and much more.

    It's the ideal download manager for daily or infrequent use to make your downloads easier, faster and more colourful. It's genuinely free for private use, too. "

    You can get it from File Hippo : xxtp://www.filehippo.com/download_leechget/
