GIMP won't download

Hi all,

The PortableApps.com platform can't download GIMP (but other apps does work/gets installed without any problems). The following URL is shown:
https://downloads.sourceforge.net/portableapps/GIMPPortable_2.8.16-4.paf...

Meaning I can't use GIMP. I think the URL is wrong. Hopefully somebody can fix this issue...

EDIT:
Opening the URL within Firefox it does work.
EDIT 2:
I see the download is starting OK (of 6140kb file), but it stops at 99% everytime it looks like. Then I retries again, eventually I get the message:
"Download Error: Reget Error on file http://download...."

Any thoughts?

Kind regards,
Melroy

Which Mirror?

Which download mirror are you trying to download from if you follow that link within your browser? It's working for me in the platform and in the browser, so it's on my local SourceForge mirror.

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

See my edits, I don't see

See my edits, I don't see which mirror the PortableApps Platform uses, I only see that the download is going OK until 99%. Then the error appears: "Download Error: Reget Error on file ...".
