Download Directory Problem OE3.4

Hi
Ever since I upgraded from Offline Explorer Enterprise version 2.9 to 3.4, there has been a bug in the Download Directory for project file locations. For example, mine is set to download in "d:\oe". If I`m trying to download the site "www.metaproducts.com", the file location on my computer becomes "d:\oewww.metaproducts.com" on the drive root. It has become really annoying since the directories are all over my computer and it causes problems when I run updates after trying to organize the files.

I`ve tried installing newer versions (3.4.1810), but the problem persists.
Please inform of any workarounds/fixes.
Thanks.

This is really strange. I just tried to change such setting several times and it works properly.

Can you please try the following - select the folder with your Projects in Offline Explorer Enterprise (for example, "Default".) Then click the Properties button on toolbar, check the Download Directory box and set it to d:\oe\ (with the slash at the end). Click the OK button and try to download any of the Projects in that folder again. Would this work?

Best regards,

That`s great...it seemed to fix the problem.
I specified the path in Tools->Options->File Locations. Strange that there are 2 settings for this.

Thanks a lot! :)

The setting in Options dialog is global. But you can override it for any of your folders and have several download locations.
