Boris,

Did you use the link at the Mass Downloader details page?
You can also use the link: http://www.metaproducts.com/download/mdsetup.exe

If your exiting while downloading, it doesnt surprise me you see an error. Try pausing it or try waiting for the download to finish and then exit.
Or am i missing something here. ?

if i will pause or wait till download
everything is ok

but when i am exiting without manual pause i get error
lets say its error like if explorer doesnt work you press end now
and after it you see window explorer has encoureged an error and needed to be closed
send error , dont send....

and the same situation when i exit MD without pause
im getting this window

Well you would wouldnt you, its like closing down any application while its busy running, thats why we have exit and pause buttons on all applications. What you are experiencing is normal, dont worry about it.

Are you pausing the download before you exit ? If not, there you go.

Well try pausing it, lolll I`ve never heard anything like the way you are doing it...
Ive read the HELP SECTION and can find no mention of it auto pausing on exit, YES itll probably resume ok, but why try to make it crash when theres no point in doing it.
I could make MD crash if i really wanted to, but it doesnt if used correctly.

i like to test software with any available situations and options, so i was doing it and found this "bug"

Well ANY software will crash if used incorrectly, i mean if youre doing something on XP and shut it down while its doing it, itll cause problems, it doesnt mean its a bug does it ? Any software will freeze, crash,lock up, etc if not used right. What youve described are not bugs at all, they are symptons of unexpected closure of a running application. Nothing more ,nothing less.

Col,

Boris is right, Mass Downloader must not crash on such exit. We will fix this problem as soon as we reproduce it at our test system. Now we are wait for Mass Downloader registry settings from Boris.
Boris, did you get my request I sent you a couple of days ago?

Thanks,
Alexander

Apologies Boris. I havent experienced this problem myself. I mistook what was happening for basic user error. Regards Col .

Big Thank
it works good!!!!

can i ask something :)
can you do so :
when download completes do not start other

cos it starts by queue or by priority value

can there be option like : do not start other downloads automaticly when downloads complete
Alexander 10/29/2005 05:44 pm
Boris,

Thank you for your feedback.
Please go to the Mass Downloader File menu, Default Project Properties item.
In the Project Properties dialog please check the "Do not load this Project automatically" box and click the OK button. This will work for all newly added Projects.
Please click inside the Projects list and press Ctrl+A keys to select all Projects. Then please go to the Download menu, select the Queue | Set Paused item. This will set the "paused" autostart set to existing projects.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.

Sincerely,
Alexander.
