Network error while downloading - server replied: Forbidden

  • Dear all,
    I am trying to install using the online installer on Windows 10 Version 2004 (OS Build 19041.450). I am getting the following:

    Network error while downloading 'http://download.qt.io/online/qtsdkrepository/windows_x86/desktop/tools_mingw/qt.tools.win32_mingw482/4.8.2meta.7z': Error transferring http://download.qt.io/online/qtsdkrepository/windows_x86/desktop/tools_mingw/qt.tools.win32_mingw482/4.8.2meta.7z - server replied: Forbidden.

    I have tried repeatedly, to no avail.

    Here is a screenshot of the above.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Which version of the installer are you using ?

  • The filename of the online installer is:


    The File Version (under Properties > Details) is:

    There is very little to no info in the window application itself. It is titled "Qt Setup" with a minimal ("Settings" &) "Next" & "Cancel" layout. I cannot see any version info anywhere.
