Hello. I own both Mass Downloader and Offline Explorer Professional. I''ve used both products successfully in my previous automation projects. I need to do something different this time and need advice. I''m trying to automate downloading some individual files. I need to specify the download url and explicitly set the output path and output filename.

I can''t figure out how to do this in Offline Explorer Pro without getting the whole folder/subfolder structure in that program. I want all output files in a single folder with the output name I specify.

In Mass Downloader, I don''t see a command argument for specifying these values, either. I see where they are in the .dat file, but I am hoping there is an easier way to specify these values.

Please advise. Thanks!
