Howdy.

I am not able to load up MD 2.7.517, It will show the splash screen, then dissappear. I had recently defraged my hard-drive and ever since then I have had this problem. I can`t load up the software :(

I have tried to re-installing it, and it installs fine. But I still have the same problem, dbl clicking the MD icon on desktop, splash screen loads up then dissappears. And then nothing, I have even had TaskManager loaded to see if it was running, and nothing shows.

I have even tried it directly from programfiles/massdownload/massdown.exe to make sure that the desktop icon wasnt faulty.

Not sure what I can do.

My O.S. is Windows XP Pro.

I am a registered customer of this software.

Dear Russell Leary,

Thank you for writing us.
Does Mass Downloader show its icon (three green arrows) in the system area (bottom-right corner of the screen)?

It doesnt show what you describe at all. Nothing in Taskbar, nothing loaded by viewing with TaskManager, just that when I try to load it up via desktop icon or viewing withing IE web browser (right Click selection menu) , it will show the Splash Screen for a few secs, then disappear.

Did defragging my hard drive have an effect on this?
