So you'll be using the disc? Can you explain a bit more? When do you get the 'forbidden' message, as soon as you try and download? Or part way through? Is there a specific error code, like a number or something?

And what does 'dl the above' mean? I didn't understand

Hi

thanks for the quick reply

"dl the above" i.e download the above file in the thread heading,being sonicstage full installer.

i go to this link:

http://www.atraclife.com/downloads/download.php?file=19

click on the "i agree" button,and instead of the download commencing i get this message:

----------------------------------

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /temp/1/SS40_MDCF.exe on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

---------------------------------

I am preseuming this 34mb file is either a .exe or .iso which i can install the full sonic stage software offline,without having to download any installation files from the internet from my girlfriends fathers pc later today,as he has no internet connection.

Hmmmm, maybe you clicked on an outdated link. Did you try downloading it from somewhere else? Like here?

It's so long since I installed mine that I can't remember if I needed an internet connection, but I vaguely remember one part of the installation taking a long time. I think maybe the SS database registration requires internet access. When I use the backup tool to restore files, SS always needs internet access to 'authorise' the database before it restores, so I'd imagine it also needs it on installation also. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

That link you give is the official sony download link,where an internet connection is required for online installation,downloading the required files "on the fly".

the download link on this website is the full unofficial download with all files required for installation contained in the download.

thanks for your help,maybe a site admin can maybe explain the dead link or remove it?

I've just reported the same problem on the HDD section. Still isn't working, it's the SS 4.0 full installer on this forum that is faulty, not a download from the Sony site.

The SS 4.0 full installer is no longer available unfortunately, we will be putting up an updated 4.3 full installer sometime soon over at MDCF and possibly here also.
