Massdownloader Problems

Author Message

I can`t seem to download files via links that use different arrangements of php code. Like it downloads - enter.php, instead of the zip or exe file. Also at times, it downloads - name-of-file.html, instead of the program. Do a right click and you get a message box with - Error in script on this page. I tried setting Massdownloader to ignor .html .php files and so on, but it didn`t help.

Someone else try it.

These are members only links, so they may not work for others.

Non-Menber links that work at the non-member site.
That is, they work after clicking the download button,
as MD picks up the click.
(( Note Webattack site is now Snapfiles. ))

Setup - WinXP / IE 6.0 / MD 2.6

Dear Mark,

Thank you for writing us.
Do you have the MS Cookie option activated in Mass Downloader?
Please check:
1. Go to the Mass Downloader Options dialog, Intergation | Browsers section
2. Check the box "Use cookies"
3. Click the OK button

Then please test your downloads and write us about the result. Thank you.

Best regards,

Hi Alex,

I checked and "use cookies" was off / unchecked. I checked it and tried again. If I use Alt-Ctrl-and Click on the download link, it works and picks up the file and downloads it.

Thank You for your help. Much appreciated !
