Downloads from archive do not work

Download start but go for 10 kb/sec for a month so far. With this speed it is barely possible to download anything.

I need to download older version to install on Vista 32-bit

Is there other option to download it from, or is it possible to fix archive server?

Suppose you are talking of http://downloadarchive.documentfounda... (the "old" doesn't mean anything here).
From there I just downloaded the newest ReleaseCandidate for Win64 (> 260MiB) within about 35 s.

Well - frankly speaking, testing with the latest release might not be the correct test (it usually has numerous mirrors, while older usually don't - see e.g. http://downloadarchive.documentfounda... vs http://downloadarchive.documentfounda...) ... and the former is downloaded at 10-15 KB/s here

Tanks! But ... I just got 5.4.7 Win 32 and 5.4.7 Win 64 as well within less than 180 s. (apologies for the unnecessary traffic I caused.)

I asked our infra, and they mentioned that IPv6 "not throttled". Maybe you have that enabled (I don't, since my ISP still doesn't provide it!) :-)

How about putting still some older release but the latest stable release that works on Vista on frontpage and provide mirrors for that ??? I believe there are folks that still use Vista systems.

Mike, folks, 10 KB/sec nowadays. ????!!!!!!

the "old" means the file located on http://downloadarchive.documentfounda... and not mirrored elsewhere

Once again, we need here latest release that installs on VISTA 32 bit. Thank you.

And, again, it would be really nice if one VISTA 32-bit release will be mirrored on fastest servers than ones that work on wired modem from 1990s ;-)

@Mike Kaganski: Yes, I have IPv6 enabled. (ISP is M-net.)
