Error message on my IDM

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -

I always use IDM to download things, until yesterday it worked great. But now it is showing some error messages.

When I try to click Download button it shows an error which says "Error 0x80030002" You can't Continue this process.

Anyone know how to solve this.

If you know it please tell me, it will be a great help.

Thank you.

Error message on my IDM


1. Make sure that you have installed the latest version of IDM.

2. Some sites/servers do not allow requesting the same file twice. The browser made the first request of the file and then when IDM tried to request the same file again, the site sent a web page to IDM instead of the download.

That is the reason for the error message.

To download from such sites try to enable "Start downloading immediately while displaying." option in "Options-> Downloads" dialog (if it is disabled).


If it does not help, you can set a special key in "IDM Options->General->Keys".

Press and hold this key while clicking on a download link/button so that IDM could take over the download before the first browser request. Note that "Ins" key should work for most browsers.
