Every time MassDownloader (3.9.854) is started, it creates the registry key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths" and writes a value of "NormalCnt".
Notice the duplicated HKEY_CURRENT_USER in the path. This looks insane.
What is the purpose of this behavior?

doh - this comes from MD? i noticed this path longer ago.
anyway - HKCU is wrong, should be
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths
for application path

eg
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\massdown.exe
@="C:\Program Files\Mass Downloader\massdown.exe"
"path"="C:\Program Files\Mass Downloader\"

btw 3.9.1.854? from where? 853 told me "no update available"
pity - from homepage its latest. although updates are ticked i get no info about

I just downloaded from the MetaProducts site manually.
MetaProducts silently updates the files on the download site from time to time without announcement.

Yes, there some not too important updates. In such cases it is better to upload the new build as soon as possible - this way new users won't have this bug or see this erratum.

Then I hope this bug fixed silently :)

Hello,

I think you should warn customers about those silent updates.
I don't feel like dl MD once a week to discover a new build !
thanks to consider this !
