AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA,



If "DOWNLOAD" of this site http://www.winamp.com/skins/ is downloaded by "Download using Download Express" from a right click, "details.php from www.winamp.com.lnk" of "Incomplete Downloads" will remain.

Start Menu
MetaProducts Download Express > Incomplete Downloads > details.php from www.winamp.com.lnk



The following will happen, since it writes in a registry at the time of download.
Why does it write in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt" at the time of download?

> 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.)

Why is a history saved at "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MetaProducts\Download Express\Completed" instead of "C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\MetaProducts\Download Express indexes\Projects.ini"?

Starting of projectslist.exe moves a history to Projects.ini".

Is abolishing "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MetaProducts\Download Express\Completed" and writing in Projects.ini first impossible?

When renaming from [*.zip.DE] to [*.zip] and there is a file of a same name but a different file, is issuing permission dialog or renaming [*(0000).zip} possible?

Dear Takei Oiisu,

Thank you for writing us.
We will fix the problems you mentioned in the next version of Download Express.

> Why is a history saved at "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MetaProducts\Download

> Express indexes\Projects.ini"?

Olders versions of Download Express didn`t have Projects List and Projects.ini file. We used Registry for storing information about incomplete downloads (Microsoft recommends to use Registry for storing application data.)
The new versions of Download Express have Projects List and we plan to cancel using Registry for writing information about completed and incompleted projects.

Yes, Download Express will rename such file automatically. We plan to add this feature to the next version of Download Express.

Thank you for your help.

Please download "www.metaproducts.com/mp/images/boxes/mpProducts_D_Box.gif" of the upper site by DE.
( http://www.metaproducts.com/mp/images/boxes/mpProducts_D_Box.gif )

When download goes wrong, the file "mpProducts_D_Box.gif.DE" remains.

If the movies(metafile) of this site is downloaded by DE, the same phenomenon(Incomplete Downloads ...) will occur.

However, since it was a Japanese site and the link to movies was made from Google, please try there.

What is the problem?
It operates well for me. It creates a shortcut with the right name when download begins and removes it after download completion.
?

It is not deleted after the completion of download.
