ive been trying to download vista SP1 32bit and 64bit and the latest redist of dx9 from microsoft.com recently but no matter what i do i always get a network timeout when trying to download the files.

stuff like
http://download.microsoft.com/download/5/c/8/5c8b7216-bbc2-4215-8aa5-9dfef9cdb3df/directx_aug2008_redist.exe
will result in a time out, even when i navigate to that link through microsofts homepage.

i really want these downloads and its really startign to irritate me not being able to get them.

the web setup installer for directx however works fine.

im rather confused eh'

if someone knows of a decent mirror, that would be handy

you can try Vista SP1 32 & 64 bit from MajorGeeks (http://majorgeeks.com/Windows_Vista_Service_Pack_1_d5925.html) - they do link to MS - like most other places.

For DirectX you can try here (http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/DirectX_Redistributable/1037189523/4)
