I have had Homestead for almost 8 years and all of a sudden it doesnt want to download in my computer..I have delted it and tried to download it so many times and still nothing..I have been paying for services for over a year now and have not been able to access my site to update it..I am fed up and nothing is working. I am about to switch web servers if this continues. Please dont tell me to take down my firewall and try to download the 'zip' file..I have done all this many many times.

Hi Jennifer,

Sorry for the frustration.

Please try clicking on this link and see if your computer will download it. (Make sure to save it instead of running it)

http://install.homestead.com/~site/In...

Once you download the file, right click on it and choose properties. When the small window opens up, click the Compatibility tab and run int in a different mode (Windows XP). You can also check the box to run as admin. Click Apply or Ok and then click on the setup file to start the installation.

Thanks!

Chris
