quick start vm download fails on firefox, firefox dev, chrome on windows 8

Download from either of these pages for VMware version, fails.


A workaround is install cygwin and download using wget.

As you see, wget faces an issue, but recovers from it.  I am guessing the browsers fails to recover from it.


$ wget
