MD ingnores max active download setting?

07/16/2007 10:21 pm
I just tried MD and so far it's a great program. However, it seems MD does not obey the max active download at all or I have not used it properly.

- Set max active downloads to 2
- Added 5,6 six links to download to MD
- Select all of them and clicked the START button

All of them start download. Is it intended or MD is not working right for me?
Thanks for time

Thank you for writing us.
This behavior is OK. We decided not to limit user operations. If the user wants to start some projects over the limit, Mass Downloader allows him to do this.

The Maximum Active Downloads parameter regulates the number of downloads that can be started automatically. In your case Mass Downloader will keep 2 active downloads running - it will start the next download when one of the currently running ones finishes.

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