Signed in with account, ensured security and browser settings were appropriate and tried Internet Explorer. Chrome and Edge with no success in downloading Quartus 16.1, Quartus Help and Prime Programmer and Tools from https://fpgasoftware.intel.com/16.1/?edition=lite&platform=windows.
Could I please receive direct links or some form of alternative? My course requires these tools.
Yes. I have troubleshot and absolved my security and browser settings, to include pop-up/ad blockers, etc, as the culprit.
A direct link or alternate means of getting these tools seems to be the only other option unless the links suddenly and inexplicably start working again...
I have no problem downloading those files using browser FireFox 80.0.1 and add-ins NoScript, Ghostery, AddBlockPlus, and PrivacyBadger. Running on Windows 7 64b.
Select files, request download, log in, asks file save location, wait a bit, done.
I would say the problem looks to be in the configuration or setup of YOUR system, and not a problem with Intel's website. I would suggest you try using a different computer to download the files.
al6dn.....thank you for your suggestions but they are pretty basic troubleshooting steps that I have already taken.
I will wait for official support because, as I've already mentioned, my research also highlights the pervasiveness of this issue, even in these very forums.
I'm not sure Intel/Altera is in a position to debug your computer setup.
Be that as it may, you need to provide very specific info on your system configuration.
What OS and version?
Antivirus and/or firewall software enabled? Versions?
What browser(s) and version(s)?
Specific add-ons enabled in your browser(s)?
Home or work network?
Behind a firewall (router) or direct internet connection?
IPv4 or IPv6 access?
Without the nitty gritty details you are going to get just generic responses.
