Ty for providing the link.
But it still sends me to a dead page.
I've tried both Firefox and Opera, but still a dead site.
Any other reason for it not to work?
Region locked maby?
Thx

Tried on my laptop.
Same issue, the links work the first time ( both of them )
39MB is downloaded, can be installed.
Opening the software gives an error message ofc.

It's supposed to be a 424Mo .exe file, for some reason your pc only download a part of it, wich explain why the installer crash...
If the problem is present on two computers and firefox/opera, it may related to your ISP.
Have you tried to download similar big files from different websites to see if it happens again?

I download stuff on a daily basis.
Ranging from 100MB to 30GB.
Could it be related to port forwarding?
I have very little knowledge on our router.
I had a mate forwarding a port to gain access to an online game.
Thx

Great! Have fun!

Note that the demo will constantly download parts of the global elevation dataset. I hope this one won't be locked in your main computer, but in this case you can download the full dataset here.

It is definitely worth doing! Only one DL and you have the whole world to explore. I recommend if you have the storage space to download the entire Earth.
