Continue downloading after 100%

Hello,

I use Massdownloader 2.4 sr1 together with Netscape 7.01. MD has started a strange behaviour lateley. Uninstalling and reinstalling hasn`t helped. When a project is downloaded to 100%, MD continues to downlod. I don`t know what it downloads, but the download continues. There hasn`t been any unfinished projects in the list when this has happened.

When I close MD after the download, it causes a drash in an unknown modul.

I use 2.4 since 2.5 has a bug. At least I concider it as a bug: When I drag a thumbnail to Massdownloader, I am prompt if I want to download the thumbnail itself or the image the thumbnail is linked to. Of course I don`t want to download the thumbnail. This stupid question I don`t get with 2.4.

Thank you for this link.
Please look: each thumbnail image has `1` attached to the end of file name.
Linked files have `2` attached. Please check which file Mass Downloader prompts you to download?
When I drop the thumbnail to the green arrow, Mass Downloader prompts to save ...2.jpg file.

Sincerely,
Alexander.

Thanks Alexander,

I drag a thumbnail to the green arrow. Then I get a dialog box "Mass Downloader add projects preview" with two projects, ...1.JPG and ...2.JPG and I can select if I want to download one of them or both. Since I never want to download thumbnails, this dialog box is only annoying and time consuming, if I want to download lots of JPEG files.

In MD 2.4 I don`t get this dilalog box. That`s why I have continued to use this version.

Sincerely

Fredrik

Dear Fredrik,

Unfortunately, we cannot reproduce this problem. It seems that cause is in your settings of Mass Downloader. I sent you a message with details on extracting Mass Downloader settings. Please send them to me.

Thank you for your help.

Dear Uraz,

Thank you for writing us.
Could you please make the detailed downloading log file for one of these
problem downloads?

For making the detailed log please check all settings under the Log tab in
the Project properties dialog for the selected project. Start downloading.
After it is done, if this error appeared, right-click in the Log view window
and select "Save to file" item from the pop-up menu. Save file, pack it
using WinZip or etc program and email it to me as attachment.

Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,
Alexander.
