After I @#$%ED UP the install thru WinDOZE updates--which took about 3 HRS-- (don't ask, I TOTALLY screwed the pooch) I d/l'd the standalone .exe (903mb x64)

DL took 10 minutes.
Install took 38 mins
Config took 11 mins

Granted I d/l'd @ 1:40 AM while "normal" people sleep.....but NO ONE has ever accused me of belonging to that species....

So How do I download the standalone Windows 7 SP1 x64 (buy the 903MB) one? Hughes Net is going to hate me so I have to download it via college network? Thanks for the information Andrew!

Go to this link . After you complete the Validation process you'll be given a choice 7 different downloads. The two on the bottom are for the 32 bit & 64 bit d/l's (see screenshot, items bordered in red.) Choose the one appropriate to your sysem/needs.

I have a Direct link to my computer which has been fully validated and i have 3 (OS) unique keys to enter if that link is no longer valid. I am hoping this will work because my school campus hasn't updated to Windows 7 OSes :( The only computers that are windows 7 is the cisco class i have i wont be able to try to validate the download until Monday

I would highly recommend that those on limited bandwidth plans to download the network installation, and burn it to a CD/DVD. This would prevent you from downloading it multiple plans, and you can share it with your friends so they don't use up their bandwidth.

Has anyone had any issues with the SPK? (64-bit) I have tried twice with failures. There was another recommended update as well that crashed the first time (could not re-boot) but rolled back and it installed fine. Just curious.


Two things I tried and seemed to resolve my issues:

1. There was a Hotfix as part of the diagnosis that you can run from Windows, this installed.
2. Out of habit, I opened my browser (Chrome) and tried updates. After running hotfix, I ran updates in IE.

All seems to be working and installed.

I am going to try to update it for my parents. I just wanted to double check that the second one (the one on the last one on the list on the bottom) is the 64 bit option. Thank you!
