Project Description

We need a fast, error-proof download utility to help download a 600MB installation file, which installs a client for an online MMORPG educational game for children 6-14.

Basically the goal is for the kids 6-14 to be able to download, install the client and start playing without any hassle, error, and few clicks.

Currently the installation file is broken into 3 parts here:

[url removed, login to view]

The installed client runs on Windows only (Win 98, XP and above).

Requirements for the download utility:

- single click download (or as few clicks as possible)

- automatically resumes download when error, and resumes from closest point possible not from the beginning

- opens multiple download sessions for faster download, and automatically merges the downloaded parts from different sessions

- feel free to integrate existing open source scripts, existing utilities

- automatically launches installation after download, and installs the clients with as few clicks as possible

- check and notify users of errors such as lack of administration privileges, broken connection, etc., and provide trouble shooting guides

- the username for the client is already provided by [url removed, login to view] to the user, and the password is set by the user at the registration page [url removed, login to view]

The developer should:

- install the utility at a link on the page above, and test on different Windows/PC configurations

- work with us to input and refine the error messages, user guides etc. in Vietnamese (Unicode font), and in easily understandable language for children

- provide us with the source code, or provide another solution so we can update the installation file periodically
