two (possible) bugs

i think i have found 2 problems inside OEE:

1.
in all directories which have an index.htm OEE creates(or even downloads, what would be even worse) an duplicate of this file as default.htm
so if on the server is this file:
www.server.com\directory\index.htm
OEE creates these files:
localdir\www.server.com\directory\index.htm AND
localdir\www.server.com\directory\default.htm

this leads to increased parsing time, more needed diskspace and longer download times
(depending on how many times this appears on special servers)

2.
when i set a download limit (like 250000kb) in the advanced settings OEE simply crashes as soon as this limit is reached. no error message is reported.
(i need this setting for an website where i am only allowed to download 300MB per day)

regards,
Mark

Dear Mark,

Thank you for your comments.

1. It is really impossible to detect how the default site document is named. Some sites use default.htm, while others - index.html. There are other names also. Offline Explorer uses default.htm in cases when a URL is ended with / - no filename specified.

2. Can I ask you to test updated version of Offline Exploprer Enterprise?

Please download it here:

http://www.metaproducts.com/download/betas/oee1092.zip

Unzip the oe.exe file and replace its old version with the new one. Please
keep me informed how it works.

Thank you!

i?ve just tried it for the first time.
i have set the abort value to 5000kb (for testing only) and it was working fine. (no crash) :-)

whoever i have noticed that after the limit is reached OEE is still continuing to parse the projects files.
as no files are added to queue anymore this looks quite senseless.
perhaps you can stop the parsing aswell as soon as the limit is reached?

thanks,
mark

Parsing is necessary here. Otherwise downloaded files will not have links changed for offline browsing.
