Enhance the generated emails with full URLs to the files for ease of use with download managers

description

•I raised in the standup last week the possibility of the download transport being HTTP rather than FTP. Rui mentioned this was because of “because of resume support” for FTP – I think FTP is blocked at many organisations I visit but HTTP is not. It’s a project decision at the end of the day (or we could support both?) - this brings me to two other points:

◦Brian Keller’s download instructions (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/briankel/archive/2013/08/02/visual-studio-2013-application-lifecycle-management-virtual-machine-and-hands-on-labs-demo-scripts.aspx) recommends using Free Download Manager


◦Therefore the links in the email should be the full URL to the file rather than just the filename in the email:

◦We should also point people towards Free Download Manager, in the same way that Brian Keller does.
