Dear Takei Oiisu,

Thank you for writing us.
Download Express displays Places Bar starting from 1.4 version.

Do you mean this item changed its position in IE`s right-click menu?

Thanks,
Alexander

ok.

Please change your setup into this setup.
[Accept file types: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, ]

and,
for example,
Please download a skin from a right click to this site. > http://www.winamp.com/skins/

Please download without changing a file name [details.php].

If download is completed, please download the same file to the same place once again.

Isn`t it overwritten without permission?



My IE`s right-click menu
A right click menu is made into this order of a row.
aaa, bbb, ccc, ddd (The example of a right click menu)
--------------------------
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb
Download using Download Express
cccccccccccccccccccccc
ddddddddddd
--------------------------

After download, this becomes at the bottom.
--------------------------
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb
cccccccccccccccccccccc
ddddddddddd
Download using Download Express (It moves to the bottom.)

Although I want to delete the history of projectslist.exe, where is this data?
Although it can delete by projectslist.exe.
where is this data?


I want you to make setup also including this portion of a registry editor which does not save a history.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MetaProducts\Download Express
LastClpURL

Deleting is troublesome.

sometimes,
It may not become active even if it clicks Save File as Dialog.(Places Bar`s dialog)
It will become active if it clicks after clicking other windows etc.


Even if it clicks IE behind a downloading dialog, it remains in the front and does not hide back.
*downloading dialog ( http://www.metaproducts.com/mp/images/screen/mpDE-2.gif )
If this dialog is made active once, it will come to hide.


put it all together
DE dialog sometimes is out of control.

Dear Takei Oiisu,

Thank you for your feedback.

Please note that this setting is intended for click monitoring, not for the right-click menu.

How do you do this? Do you add the same link again?
Otherwise it is the same Project and file. We decided to not make Download Express too complicated and didn't added the confirmation for such rare case.

Thank you. It seems that we have to write to MyIE`s developers and ask them about this problem.

Thanks,
Alexander.

Download Express doesn`t keep the history of your downloads. If you delete projects from Projects List there still no any information about deleted projects.
Projects List keeps its data in the [Documents and settings\]Application data\MetaProducts\Download Express folder.

Could you please describe me your need in details?
This registry parameter is the last link catched by Download Express from a clipboard.

Thank you for your help.

Do you still have the Download Express 1.3 version?
Also, could you please describe me the way to reproduce this problem?
Thank you!

Is there any sequence of actions which allows to reproduce the problem?

Thank you very much.

It uninstalled.

The animation was uploaded.

Since this uploader is updated and is lost early, if lost, it will upload again.

It was found. thank you.
it can delete easily. it is convenient.


> How do you do this? Do you add the same link again?
It is the case where the file of the same file name has already existed.
It is the case where a different file(same file name) is downloaded.

ABCDE.zip(size 100kb) exists in local folder >
download from right click menu at the same folder >
[details.php] save > DE downloads ABCDE.zip(different file but same file name)(size 735kb) >
Download is completed > ABCDE.zip.DE is changed ABCDE.zip. overwritten without permission >
Only ABCDE.zip(size 735kb) remains in local folder.
ABCDE.zip(size 100kb) is missing.

When projectslist.exe is started, a history arises.
so,
If projectslist.exe is started even if it deletes Projects.ini etc, a history will arise.
Where is really history?
Alexander 04/29/2004 02:19 am
Thank you for your explanations.
We will test Download Express for this situation and find the solution.

Regarding the Projects List - do you have this problem in Download Express 1.5 version?
Please try to remove all projects from Projects List, close it. Then please open it again. Will it contain any projects?
Please write us about the result. Thank you.

No. Projects does not remain.
However, it is not such a thing that I want to say.

[How to delete all projects]

Method 1
1.open projectslist.exe
2.remove all projects
3.close projectslist.exe

Method 2
1.open projectslist.exe
2.close projectslist.exe
3.delete Projects.ini

Some projects cannot be deleted unless both method open projectslist.exe first.
I expected the method of only deleting Projects.ini.

1.open Projects.ini......project is nothing
2.open projectslist.exe.......Some projects exist
3.close projectslist.exe
4.open Projects.ini.......Some projects exist(It did not exist at step 1.)
When projectslist.exe opens, some projects is written in Projects.ini.
Where were any projects till then?
(=Where did any projects exist until it opened projectslist.exe?)

Did you downloaded any files after the closing ProjectList.exe and before the step 1?
dep.exe saves new downloads to the special list. ProjectsList.exe loads them on start and adds to the list.

We will change this system in the 1.6 version, so dep.exe will save this new downloads directly to Projects.ini.

Alexander
