I went to download a program today by clicking on DOWNLOAD NOW link. The Download Express window came up and I noticed that the program was being downloaded to C Windows Temp folder. Well I want it to be downloaded to my own Downloads Folder. How do I program Download Express to download all files to my own Download Folder please ?
Thank you.

William,

Thank you for writing us.

When you click a download link, please select the "Save this program to
disk" item in the Download File dialog (with a locomotive picture and the
"Personal Edition" text,) then click the OK button.
Download Express will show the Save As dialog.

Sincerely,
Alexander.

Hi Alexander,

I followed your instructions and it does change the destination folder. BUT every time I do this with any downloadable program, it goes through all 10 attempts to download and it cannot download it. Whereas, if I just click on the link to download the program, the DE window opens up with the destination being C Windows Temp and it downloads it straightaway.
What is going on ?
Thank you.

Hi Alexander,

My Download Express Version 1.9.0.337
I downloaded it recently.

I tried all the download links on this page with the same results that I described in my previous post.

I hope you can solve this basic problem. Thank you.

William,

We made several tests but cannot reproduce this problem. What is your browser name and version?
If it is Internet Explorer version 6 or higher, please try the following:
1. Go to the Download Express Options dialog, Integration page
2. Set the "Use alternative integration" box and click the OK button
Then please test your downloads and write me about the result.

Thank you,
Alexander

William,

Thank you for your feedback.
Could you please uninstall Download Express, reboot your system and install Mass Downloader?
You can download it from: http://www.metaproducts.com/download/mdsetup.exe
Please test it on these links and write me about the result.
Thank you!

Mass Downloader can show two different dialog windows when you add the new downloade to it (depends on the program settings.)
The picture of the first one is: http://www.metaproducts.com/download/Image1.gif
The picture of the second one is: http://www.metaproducts.com/download/Image2.gif
Which one do you see in Mass Downloader when you click the link in the browser?

Thanks,

To change the downloading folder please use the browse button at the end of the Save As line (with a folder icon.)
You can use the Set As Default box to remember your selection for future use.

The Save As line with a folder icon is GREYED OUT so I cannot do this. I have Windows 98 first edition and am on dial-up Internet.

How did you add this download to Mass Downloader? Was it the click monitoring, drag&drop or something else?

Thanks,

At the top of the above web page there is a downloadable program called RoboForm 6.6. At the right there is a hyperlink which is called DOWNLOAD NOW
I right clicked on this Download link. From the menu options that appeared, I clicked on Mass Downloader: download this file.
The dialog window that came up was Image2.gif
-----
The odd thing now is that when I click on Mass Downloader: download this file, the About Mass Downloader Window comes up and the Mass Downloader program crashes.

I rebooted the computer to see if there is any change but the same thing has happened.
