If you have already saved an extension to your desktop (or other location), you can skip this.Download the extension that you want to your computer. For security reasons, it is highly recommended that you only save/install add-ons from the official Firefox Add-ons site, from an official Mozilla site, from a Mozilla repository on github, or from a trusted Mozilla employee or volunteer.If a download option isn't available, right click on the extension's install link and select "Save Link As..". Be sure not to change the file extension. A Firefox extension will be an .XPI file.Example: web_developer_tools_toolbar_button-0.9.5-fx.xpiOnce you have downloaded the extension, there are several ways that you can install it.
Method:Drag the extension to the Firefox desktop (or other) program shortcut. If Firefox is running, you'll see the Software Installation window appear > Install Now. If Firefox is not running, it will start up and the Software Installation window appear > Install Now.If you have a Firefox desktop shortcut with -no-remote -p appended to it (allows for running multiple instances of Mozilla apps), you can install the extension into whatever profile that you'd like if Firefox is not currently running.
Method:Firefox 4 and higher.Open the Add-ons Manger > (Alt + t > a) click on the gear icon (Tools for all add-ons) > Install Add-on From File.. > browse to the theme file > double click the file (or select Open) > Install Now
Method:Open the Add-ons Manger > (Alt + t > a) click on Appearance > drag the theme file that you saved to the instance of Firefox on the taskbar > wait for Firefox to appear > drop onto the browser window > Install Now.
It also provides a rating system, as well as your viewing history and playback progress. You can even use this Plex plugin to sync data between all of its supported applications, including Kodi, MediaPortal, Emby, and Infuse. While it can be difficult for Trakt Scrobbler to measure progress for multiple users, this can be remedied by linking each user to an individual Trakt.tv profile.
When you use this option it downloads that huge .exe file and extracts the files to c:\autodesk\another_folder_name, then it runs setup for you. If this process is stopped or interrupted you will get that message or if you try to manually run the setup later.
So to get past the Communication Failure error I'd recommend downloading it again using the "Download Now" option, download it and double click that .exe to extract all the files and it will run setup for you..
Autodesk Download Managers keeps failing saying "there is an error in network connection". I have tried the browser download. It will download but when you try to run any of the files it downloads, it says they are incomplete.
I have had to uninstall the download manager to get it to install properly so it would work on a few machines, but for the most part it's plug-n-play. The Browser download may need to download multiple files, if one of the files is not done downloading or is missing or in a different folder you will get that message.
I had no idea how to do it, but I've followed this guide and I opened up the ports. Nothing changed though. I have tried downloading the thing before, I have a white file called AutodeskDownloadManagerSetup.exe, but as I ran it it installed something and nothing happened then. Now it only goes into "repair" mode, I cannot find the program, it didn't ask me where to install it so I assumed it would just begin downloading but honestly I'm pretty confused now :
In regards to the file sizes, they vary per method as Install Now downloads a small installer file while in turn continues to download while the software installs, Download Now installs and extracts at the same time, and the Browser Download is the traditional download .exe file that requires an additional extraction step prior to installing.
I am also getting the exact same error message when trying to install Maya 2013. I have tried the install now method, running the donloaded file, going through the files and running the setup file and everytime i receive the message. Some things that may be worth mentioning are: i have opened the ports you said to, I am trying to use the student version, I have opened the installer before on another machine where it worked fine but i never completed any of the steps as i wanted it on a different machine. Help would be much appricated.
I have tried the other methods but i notice that when i begin these methods it will start to download a file that i alreadt have. It is once i try to run this file I receive the error message. Does this help?
Can you please delete the existing download files and try again using the Browser Download method. If you receive another error during the initialization / installation, please take a screen shot and attach it in a reply so that we can troubleshoot accordingly.
I'm encountering the same issue while trying to download the Student Version of Maya 2013. I've tried Install Now and Download Now and neither work. Install now just gives me a file that, when run, only gives me a Communication Error. I tried changing the ports and I even turned off my firewall to try that. When I click Download Now it only gives me the install file for the Autodesk Download Manager, while has already been installed. When I run the DLM a download does not start like the website and all resources I can find suggest. As previously mentioned, I had a bunch of files that had accumulated from the multiple attempts, I deleted those and I'm still encountering this issue. I restarted my computer and repeated everything mentioned, to no avail. Any suggestions?
As the 2014 suite browser download links are not yet available on Matt, our Virtual Assistant (should be within the next couple of days), I'll send you a Private Message (little envelope next to your profile name when signed in) with the corresponding timed links.
On Windows 10, you can resize a partition at any time. However, if you plan to create a dual-boot system or want to keep files separate from the installation, you can create a custom partition for Windows 10 and apps during the installation process.
