Looks like something has changed on the download page. Prompts for an Akamai download manager install. Maybe it will work now foregoing the need to install the Akamai thing :smileyhappy:

Thanks, looks like the Akamai downloader is working. Though using Chrome I was prompted that the site was trying to start multiple downloads. I allowed it, which started trying to redownload the NDK installer ever 5 seconds.

Re: Windows NDK Download Broken

Just one person's experience, but: I tried to download the NDK in Chrome, and when I clicked the download button, nothing happened.  A righ-click>Save link as ... on the download button, however, did get it to download.  I wasn't prompted to use any Akamai downloader or anything.

Re: Windows NDK Download Broken

I had the akamai pop up whilst using firefox. There is a bigger thread about download issues under the Webworks & HTML5 Dev threads. Anywho think they said that had gotten the problem fixed earlier today. I downloaded directly from the URL as well though, which worked fine today.

Re: Windows NDK Download Broken

FWIW, very early this morning (using Firefox) to enjoy a working download I had to right click on the Download Button, copy link location, and paste the URL into the Address Bar... since nothing was happening when simply clicking the download button.

Re: Windows NDK Download Broken

I had to do the samething in IE8. It probbly works in one of the browsers, but since I only needed to do this once, I figured RIM will fix this at some point.
