How to Download the SAP GUI using Download Manager

The installable SAP GUI Package is a very big file ( ranges from 450 MB to 650 MB depending on the version ) and sometimes it is difficult to download the file if the connection is unstable. In case the download does not happen properly, this would result in a corrupt file and hence can result in an un-executable file.
