The Download Manager (DLM) is a lightweight program that downloads the main installer for your Wolfram product and is designed to prevent issues with downloads over unstable internet connections.

DLMs for purchased products are found in the User Portal or Wolfram Account page under “Standard Download.” DLMs for free products such as Wolfram Player and Wolfram Engine are found on their respective product pages.

  1. Locate the DLM in your User Portal, Wolfram Account page or product page.
  2. Download the DLM to your computer.
  3. Quit any previous installations of Wolfram products that are running on your machine.
  4. Double-click the download manager application or executable icon. Click Next to download your product’s installer to the default directory.

  5. The download manager will begin downloading your product’s installer.

    The download manager allows monitoring the progress of the download, as well as pausing and resuming interrupted or paused downloads.

  6. Wait for the download to complete.

  7. After the download is complete, click the Launch button to open the installer for your product.
  8. Continue installing your Wolfram product.
