Deleting files in Projects list
|Peter||07/16/2004 12:53 pm|
|I am unable to delete some incomplete files in the Projects List.
These are old downloads that for some reason I did not complete with Download Express, but I used another download manager.
I delete the files from the list, but as soon as the list is reloaded, the file is there again!
Using Download Express 1.6 under Windows XP Home Edition SP1

|I have found the file projects.ini in the Application Data and can see the three files I want to delete.
Can I edit projects.ini to correct the problem?

Thank you for writing us.
Yes, you can edit this file. Please write us about the result. Thank you.
Meanwhile, we will check the code to fix this problem.

That did not work. The three files were still there and a new file was created in Application Data - Projects.ini.sbm
Have managed to delete the files another way though.
Edited each project and changed the "save to" into a temporary filename. Resumed the downloads and when each had downloaded some data, paused each download. I was then able to delete them correctly!!

|Forgot to say that I restored a backup of Projects.ini from before the edit.|

We will fix this error shortly.
