Current .Net Core Hosting Bundle Installer (direct download) - 

However when I click on that link from two different PC's I get the same error. Seems to be a Microsoft Web Server Error based on everything I can find. Any suggestions or is there an outage that I can't find or something?

    Hi @Rob Kemp,

    I also tried to click the link and I could download the exe, I assume this is the network issue, I suggest you could directly try below link to see if you could download it?
