Restarting the Microsoft File Transfer Manager

If you’ve ever used the Microsoft File Transfer Manager to download items from the MSDN subscriber downloads section, you may have accidentally closed it and searched your drive high and low to find the application to restart it.

If you haven’t run the MSI installer and just let IE install it, the application is in %SYSTEMROOT%\Downloaded Program Files\TransferMgr.exe. I found this article on Microsoft which has method of starting it from the command prompt, as well as an MSI installer which actually will give you a shortcut for you to start the application.
