    Windows Vista iso file downloaded but not visible

    I have downloaded the Windows Vista iso file (x86) to my desktop using the
    akamai download manager successfully. However, when I browse to my desktop, I
    am unable to see the file. When I run the download mamager again, in the
    "save as" dialog box, I can see the downloaded file when I browse to the
    desktop. So, I can see the file in the Akamai download manager's "save as"
    dialog box, but I can't see it in the real desktop, I am also unable to
    download the file by using Internet Explorer 7, because i get an error saying
    "Internet Explorer was unable to view the webpage". I run Windows Vista Beta
    2. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    This exact thing happened to me too. Different file and too tho. What I did
    was simply to start the app that would see the downloaded file, then move it
    to another location.

    See it that does the trick for you as well. Peculiar thing tho...
