Hi

I am unable to download the standalone Blast (of any version) on my computer and getting ncbi-blast-2.2.30+win64.exe Failed -Network error.

Please suggest me some solutions so that I can download the required standalone Blast on my computer.

Thanks

Thanks for all your response

I am using windows 7 home basic, 64-operating system, 3-GB RAM

i try to right click on the below link

ftp://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast/executables/blast+/2.2.30/ncbi-blast-2.2.30+-win64.exe

to download the blast software. after a few minutes I got a message that ncbi-blast-2.2.30+win64.exe download failed due to network error.

i have tried to download other lower version also, but got the same error. so I am unable to get the required software.

Which internet browser are you using? Can you try with a different browser?

On unix, terminal, I tried:

wget "ftp://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast/executables/blast+/LATEST/ncbi-blast-2.2.30+-win64.exe"

It worked.

ftp://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast/executables/blast+/LATEST/

I clicked on ncbi-blast-2.2.30+-win64.exe, it automatically asks me to save.

What error did you get?

I assume when Divya attempted to download a Windows version ncbi-blast, she was not using a Unix terminal... Divya, how is your computer background? Can you explain in detail what you did?

Yes, I assumed it too. Hence the reason, I went ahead and tried other option of click and download. :)
