Step 1: look at http://sc2.sourceforge.net/downloads.php
Step 2: download the Windows installer
Step 3: run it

Do what meep-eep said.  Another option is to run the installer and not download the content, music, or voice files.  You can download these later using a download manager if you have dial-up like me.  But you must have the content file to at least to play the game.  The music is another good one.  Voice is the biggest.

i downloaded windows instaler, went to the file and ran it. it started to download, but after a while it gets this error:

Failed to downlaod uqm-0.3-voice.zip Reason: Download timed out.
Runn the insaller again later to retry downloading this component.
If the error stays, the installer may not be able to access the internet. In any case you cawn download the components manually from http://sc2.sourceforge.net/


i have a wireless network connection (linksys), BTW
help?

You should still be able to play the game.  To get the voice files though, you can use a download manager or just download the file from "dowloads."  You can then "copy" it and "paste" it in the "content; packages" folder.  Hope this helps.  

P.S.:  checkout the Technical Discussion.  I had a post about downloading the Voice file called:complete download. Wink

What you can try is specify in the installer you don't want the voice or music files, and then download them manually, and put them (still zipped!) in place.
See http://uqm.stack.nl/wiki/index.php?title=Content_Management#On_Windows for what a typical layout looks like.

Download uqm-0.3-voice.zip and uqm-0.3-3domusic.zip from http://sc2.sourceforge.net/downloads.php from your browser, and then copy them to the dir where uqm-0.3-content.zip is already installed.
