It seems that the latest version of Offline Explorer Enterprise (3.2.1734 SR1) has problem parsing the following URL:
http://www.exploratorium.edu/exhibits/italiano/cafe_wall/cafe_wall.dcr

When Offline Explorer Enterprise encountered the file and tried to parse the file, it just stops parsing (queue and downloads keep progressing, though).

Please excuse me that it took some time. Here is the updated oe.exe file version:

I tried downloading the updated file, but the server gave me "page not found" error message.

By the way, I think it might be useful to introduce a parsing timeout in order to deal with upcoming bugs like that.

Please excuse me. I mixed up filenames. Here is the link:

Yes, I will think about this. However there might be complex scripts or forms that should be still processed even during a long time.

I have downloaded and installed the fix.

However, even with the fix, OEE still can`t parse the following files correctly:

I tried few links and it looks like Offline Explorer parser doesn`t hang with them. What kind of problem do you have?
