Problem downloading DM 5.0.1

I'm trying to download the Desktok Manager 5.0.1 PC version from the website here:




At the next screen after I clicked on Download button, it only downloaded a 4kb excutable file (instead of 258mb). Try to open that 4kb file and it says Application Error.


Can anyone tell me where to download the DM 5.0.1? Thanks

Re: Problem downloading DM 5.0.1

I would recommend Desktop Manager, version 5, withOUT the Media Manager. Download Desktop Manager from here:
