Hi,

I have downloadable product in my store. I need to group this product along with my grouped product. But I could not associate downloadable products in a group along with simple type ones.

Please suggest.

Thanks,
--Subhan

Hi Everyone,

I have solved the problem.

First of all, override the config.xml file of “app\code\core\Mage\Catalog\etc\config.xml”. Then in
<catalog>
<product>
<type><grouped translate="label" module="catalog">

include a tag <downloadale />

Now select the option “links purchased separately” to “no” in the backend option for “Downloadable product”.

As soon as you do this, you will be able to see “Downloadable products” in the association list of “Configurable/grouped/bundle” products.

I was struggling for long time. But this is the perfect solution.

Chao…

Hi,

I stumbled across this post looking to do exactly this, enable downloadable products to be included into group products.

I followed the directions above to change the config.xml and it still won’t work. I know it’s been well over a year since there was post to this thread is anyone else able to get this to work on their site?

My site is currently running 1.8.0

I just got it to work…

I just saw someone post on a similar thread that you have to make sure the downloadable product has “Links can be purchased separately” to “No” when initially set up in the “Downloadable Information” tab. If you change it after the fact it still registers as “Yes” in the database.

It appears to be working now.

Thanks for the help.
