Cannot get Force IDE to download

Hey all,


I'm trying to download the Force IDE as a stand alone application, the Windows 64bit version (from   I have tried about 10 times total now and tried to my desktop as well as my laptop and get the same issue on both. The download just randomly stops and I get the error:


"Windows cannot open the folder.


The compressed(zipped) folder

c:\blah\blah\blah\blah\ is invalid"


I think the furthest it has gotten is 8%.  Anyone know what the problem is and how I can get the IDE downloaded?  Also, I do have the Java JRE installed.  Thanks in advance



Try to use eclipse.

Both are same in Functionality 


I'm having the same problem. Did you find a workaround?
