Problems updating to 4.1.3

I'm trying to update to 4.1.3, but keep getting this error:

Dowload Error: Reget Error on file http://downloads.sourceforge.net/portableapps/OpenOfficePortable_4.1.3_M...

It happens right at the very end of the download. I'm using the PortableApps Updater. I've tried is several times now, and get the same error each time.

p.s.

If I browse to

https://sourceforge.net/projects/portableapps/files/OpenOffice.org%20Por...

I am able to download and install it.

Antivirus / Software Firewall

Generally when this occurs, it's due to your antivirus or software firewall taking too long to examine the file after it is downloaded before making it available to the Windows API. The platform's updater uses the Windows API to handle the file download, so it's entirely Windows' components doing the work and sending that "reget" error message back to us. We've seen this happen with ESET's products before but it could happen with others as well. It will generally only affect the very large installers as the antivirus will take much longer to scan them.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

makes sense

That makes sense. I was doing it at work, and they have crazy tight security stuff, and multiple products scanning everything...
