The Administrators have been working on the issue that some people were having with downloading 3Dmark06. All indications are that the problem with downloads terminating prematurely has been solved, so download away.

Once again,

Yup, it appears that there might have been a timing issue. That's why some people would be able to get the file while others could not.

As posted on the frontpage. Alot of people here, and on other sites have had issues and bugs with this 3DMark release. It is likely that we will see a patch for this very soon, as the programmers looking into a lot of issues at the moment. Hopefully this can help some people.

3DMark06 seams to be the best new version of the veteran benchmark since 3DMark2001 in its evaluation of a gaming system as a whole, however many people have been having problems running it.

There is a known issue with VIA Chipsets running the VIA IDE Accelerator Driver, or the most recent Hyperion Driver sets which it is included in. The problem causes a BSOD when 3DMark06 tries to start, throwing videport.sys as the driver causing the BSOD. The workaround is opening Device Manager and disabling the Primary, Secondary, and Bus Mastering IDE controllers (All 3 of them). This allows normal operation of 3DMark06, and the IDE controllers can be re-enabled within windows without a reboot. This is only possible for SATA hard drive users, so if you are using PATA, you will have to wait for a new driver, or a 3DMark06 patch.

For those having stability issues in the CPU tests, reduce your overclock, and make sure your temperatures are under control. This program seams to tax CPUs extremely heavily, and any faults will be brought to the surface.

Also, for anyone who has had problems download 3DMark06 from AOAFiles, the issue causing that has been fixed, and the AOA servers are in great shape speed wise.

tried the link to see if it works. the error is:

"hoinar, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation."

I think it's possible Chris's error be the same.
