View Full Version : Cannot Download Tricaster Updates

07-23-2012, 08:45 PM
I've been trying to download the 4e version of Tricaster software for the better part of 2 weeks and so far - I've only received "incomplete" downloads or downloads that are unusable (mangled files) from the Tricaster Downloads Server.

I've also tried using different web-browsers (IE and Google Chrome) but still getting incomplete or mangled files. I have also (just today) tried downloading from someone else's PC - located miles away from my PC and getting same problems there.

I am not experiencing these issues w/ downloads from other websites......

Can someone tell Newtek that the download server is having problems?

I'll ask MIS to look into this report, but it's the first I've seen, and if it's been going on for weeks it seems unlikely to be widespread - anyone else having issues?

I was able to download it, i'll PM you a link to it on Dropbox, see if that works better for you.
I do think Newtek should name it something better than "TriCasterXD-Latest.exe", I renamed it to "TriCasterXD-rev4e.exe".

MIS tells me that there was an issue with our ISP about a week ago that resulted in sporadic very long download times (that could perhaps have run into timeouts at local IPSs), but no known problems at this time.

Unfortunately the DropBox approach didn't work either.

the DropBox file came in at 874MB - and the file does not appear to be a proper installation file - in other words there is no icon associated w/ it. So apparently something is going on w/ my PC that is blocking a proper download. However I also had trouble downloading the file from another PC located miles away from here. On that attempt I kept getting error messages saying "The NewTek Server has Timed Out" and after 3 different attempts, I finally gave up. Thanks for trying to help though!

I think I may have finally downloaded it - using my wife's PC. I'll let u know if that was unsuccessful.. Thanks!

It took us multiple attempts over a period of about three days before we could get a successful download.
