Well, IBM has said they are working on it. Been a week now. I suppose I could put in an order for DVD's. They would likely be here before the download using HTTP finishes.

Good Day,

I have been trying to download 5770-SS1 from the Entitled Software site since late last week and it still does not work. A tech support ticket response said they had similar complaints and were investigating. Specifically the 'Download Now' button does not work for Download Director.

My question being, has anyone else here tried to download system software and had this problem. While the HTTP protocol appears to work, I don't have that kind of time. I tried it on Win 7, 8, and 10, with Firefox and IE. The Download Director local component appears to be ready when loaded by itself, and works just fine for PTF's.

Trying to feel better that it's not me or my environment. Not to mention stalled from loading system software on a new Power 8, since they went cheap on me and I don't get DVD's with it.
