Hello folks,

In this article I will show you how to solve the common “download failed” plugin error during Nessus installation on Windows OS.

This sometimes happens because of the big database plugins size.

First of all you have to run the “nessuscli.exe” via command line prompt (cmd).

Make sure that you are into the Nessus installation directory.

Then you type in “nessuscli.exe” followed by the “update – -all” command.

Fetching and applying data.

After the manual update procedure in complete, you can try to run Nessus web client once again from your internet browser.
