Auto-resume support for interrupted downloads.
Multiple simultaneous download streams for (usually) a much faster download experience.
As the name implies, it's completely free. Download and open VS08_And_VS2010_URLs.txt.
Within the text file you just downloaded, highlight the list of URL's for the download you are interested in and copy this to the clipboard.
Now launch the user interface for Free Download Manager (either from the Start Menu or via the system tray icon if FDM is already running).
Click File -> Import -> Import List of URLs from Clipboard.
When prompted for a download group, accept the default ("Other") and click OK.
You are now free to minimize Free Download Manager while the files download. By default, they will be saved to c:\downloads.
When the files have finished downloading, visit the Download Details page for the respective release and follow the instructions to finish extracting and running your VPC.
NOTE: If you wish to download multiple VPC's from this set you can do so by simply repeating steps 3-8.
