I am using the latest version of DE.


I want to be able to queue up downloads and have them download one by one. How do I do this? I have active downloads set to 1. I want to click a link (or right click add to DE or something) and have it dl, and while that is downloading click another link and have it queue and automatically download when the first one is finished and so on. When I do this now, it doesn't matter how many active dl I have set, it dl them all immediately and I need to pause them but then they don't start automatically when the first one is done.

Bryan,

Thank you for writing us.
This seems to be a problem in the latest version of Download Express.
We will fix it in the next version of the program.
Your using of Active Downloads button is right and it should work the way you need it.

Does it work now?

Can't check it myself, because of the new installer that doesn't support Win95.

Mirek,

I sent you a message with the link to the updated version of Download Express. This version should work well under Windows 95. Did you receive it?

When I made my post I was using DE version 1.9.0.337. Is this the most current version? If not, send me a link to the most current version. Also I have windows XP not windows 95.

This is working well now however I noticed 1 thing. You can't change the number of active downloads on the fly when you already have downloads queued up.

For example this senario:

I have active downloads set to 1. I queue up 3 downloads and 1 is actively downloading like normal. Now I decide that I want it to download 2 active at a time so I change the active downloads box to a 2 and I get the error located in this image: http://img165.imageshack.us/img165/8495/error1mm9.jpg

If I check the do not show this again check box and click ok, if I then queue up another download after that it will still show me the message again anyway.

Finally, after I click ok on the error and after the current active download is finished, it stops downloading. It doesn't continue on and download the other queued files.

The last post I made WAS using the version from the link you just sent me. Did you update that version again from a few days ago?

Yes, we updated it today.

Thanks,

This feature does not work for me. I am attempting multiple HTTPS download and have set the active to 1 but they always download at the same time.
