Have you ever started to download an application and after downloading it you realized that what you downloaded wasn’t the application but a downloader application. I’ve always disliked this as it requires an Internet connection and isn’t an installer that I can just pass around to friends. So this post is dedicated to getting those full installers.
Google Chrome: Download page
Basically add “?standalone=1” to the end of the URL of the download page that shows the Terms of Service
Live Essentials: Download page (On the download page, there is a column on the right with a “Try again” button. On pressing this button you will get the full download)
AVG: Download page
- On the initial download page, go to the bottom and where you can download the file direct from AVG servers.
- On the following page there is a link for the offline version (linked above) which is the complete installer
Skype: Direct Download | Download Page
Instead of the regular installer look for the business version that includes the MSI installer
Click the “all Java downloads here” link on the Java download page

Oh yea!!! Maybe you can make a Wiki for such links.. I am sure there are many more.. :P
Hmmm good idea. Actually I was thinking of getting direct download links for all the applications I use and compile it into a script. So that at one click I can get all the updates easily. Would be great for clean installing Windows / OS X. Similar to Windows Updates Downloader. You should go do it since you have so much free time as a student =p
It seems that my idea is already implemented in AppSnap and InstallPad. Will boot into Windows to test it
