OFF-TOPIC: Windows 10 and Microsoft File Transfer Manager (FTM) Issues (UPDATE)


This is my first post from Perth, WA. It’s been an excellent journey and so far so good. More about my Perth life later.

This is something that I never experienced before. When you download any file from PartnerSource or CustomerSource, Microsoft would let you do that only through it’s File Transfer Manager program. If you have that installed already, any download initiation would first invoke this program and then let you set the path/folder to take in that download and etc.

However, when I tried to do that from my new Windows 10 machine, the FTM did not open. I tried to figure that out, but later remembered this same issue happening on my Windows 8.1 machine.

Basically, from Windows 8.1, for some reason, calling the FTM from Internet Explorer worked only on a 32 bit Internet Explorer.

Looks like Microsoft has not fixed that yet. If you are wondering why your FTM didn’t work, this is the reason. Open your IE 32 bit mode and then try to download the file that you wanted to.

UPDATE (05-Oct-2015): Above did not work for me today. So further researching led me to this post which resolved my issue: Work around for getting File Transfer Manager to download from TechNet/MSDN
