I don't think anyone will be successful with Pega PE download. If anyone successful, i like to hear. PE is placed in wrong place with lot of restriction and no one is able to download. Raised SR but no use.
All other downloads with 5GB size downloading in 15mins at my home but my multiple tries failed. I am sure source file is in wrong place.
We have seen others on this community facing similar issues and we are trying to move things along internally. Please submit your feedback to the PDN team by clicking the black feedback button available on the right side of this window to make sure your feedback is heard by the right resources.
Please see the update from Steve Mekkelsen Madden from Pega Global Customer Support Team, on this reply.
Please know we are doing everything possible to mitigate the download response times and are actively seeking solutions. In the interim, may I suggest using a "download manager" which would help the process along. Given that the file is several gigabytes, download managers allow users to 'resume' downloads if there is any interruption in the process, making it possible to get the complete file intact. Some browsers have plugins and add-ons for free to help in this area.
If this is not a viable option to do, due to IT policies at your organization, I completely understand. Please enter in a support request from the My Support Portal (MSP) to request an alternative solution if downloading from this site is not possible.
