How to Download the Microsoft 2010 IW Demo VM Faster

Posted on February 13, 2012 by - 3,684 views

You’ve been tasked to download and test the Microsoft 2010 IW Demo VM that can be found at the Microsoft Download Center:

You have over 44 files to download and each file are mostly 700 MB in size. You start the process by clicking  the download button for each file.

However you are limited to 3 download sessions at one time and limited by the amount of download speed Sad smile

So how do you speed up the download process?



For large files, I typically like to use tools such as WS_FTP for files on FTP sites and Internet Download Manager for files on websites.

But first you need links for the files, so here they are:

2010 Information Worker Demonstration and Evaluation Virtual Machine (SP1)


Microsoft Project 2010 Demonstration and Evaluation Installation Pack:


Copy all the links or download the following txt file:


If you are using Internet Download Manager, click Tasks, then click Add batch download from clipboard.

In the Batch download from clipboard dialog box, make sure you click Check All, save to your location and click OK.


Then hopefully you will get better download speeds, but more important, you won’t need to click on the download button as all the files are already queued up.


Happy Downloading!!
