I think, it will be easy to improve Offline Explorer to get such links. Can you please give me the URL of the page with such links, so I could test the changes on it?

Thank you!

I download the oee 3.8.2044 service release 1 that you said me.Step by step:
The first problem(dowload xml files linked in html code of web page) is OK,but there is another problem related to this, that I explain later.

The second problem(download swf,txt,.. files enbebed in swf in directoy "elabs")don?t work.If you remember,the URL is http://netacad.cabrillo.edu/curriculum/ccnp1v30/index.html,i usse various setting to do this project,it download all files but the files stores in "elabs\modxx\elab_xx_yy_zz" are not complete because oee don?t analize well the "e-lab_xx_yy_zz.swf" that is linked in a "index.html" file,and has a few links embebed to another swf and txt files.Example:http://netacad.cabrillo.edu/curriculum/ccnp1v30/elabs/mod01/elab_1_4_1/index.html.
In the normal way(whit Internet explorer,Netscape,etc) when you click in this link download:index.html,e-lab_1_4_1.swf(this two files OK),eLab-engine.swf(stored in upper directory named "Engine")and various swf files named xx_yy_zz.swf stored in each chapter that oee don?t download.But I can see in the main program,in the botton window(Status/URL) that oee analize the swf file,localize the files to download but parse it bad,not in the correct path(example "e-Lab-engine.swf are in : http://netacad.cabrillo.edu/curriculum/ccnp1v30/elabs/Engine/,not in http://netacad.cabrillo.edu/curriculum/ccnp1v30/elabs/mod01/elab_1_4_1/
http://netacad.cabrillo.edu/curriculum/ccnp1v30/elabs/mod01/elab_1_4_3/
http://netacad.cabrillo.edu/curriculum/ccnp1v30/elabs/mod09/elab_9_6_10/ etc.Do you understand me?.

The new problem that I mentinated before is parsing "activity_x_y_z.html"in directory "activities".oee download the xml file linked in html code but change a variable named
<PARAM NAME="flashvars" VALUE=content=activity_x_y_z.xml to
<PARAM NAME="flashvars" VALUE=activity_x_y_z.xml and the link don?t function.See the html code of the original fiel and the parse file:

Well,I probe this new release and,well,all function ok except parsing swf file.I think that
flash applet funcion in ooe only function well with url or java/javascript only.I think so because the
the first swf(main.swf) file linked in "http://netacad.cabrillo.edu/curriculum/ccnp1v30/start.html"
has java links in the code(I can see it whit various utilities to decompile flash files),and the other swf
files in directory "elabs" not have this type of link.I can see the code and,of course,I can?t understand nothing??.This code is in Actionscript?? I think.
I think that implementing this funcion are very harded,and you will need more time to do it.I know that programing is not easy,I understant it.Perhaps in a future?.I love this program??It?s easy,very quikly parsing code and downloading files.And I thing that you can implement new function in the future.I have various ideas??.Well,thank you very much for your help and your time.At the moment i?m going to stop this project.No,no,don?t worry,I?m continue using this program in another project very important for me,and more big,about 20-40 GB??.I?m a networking engeniering in Spain,and I?m donwloading a web site whit much technology information.See you??.

Yes, calculating URLs inside Flash files is a really tough task. I really want to implement this, but it will take a lot of time, so I don`t know when it will be done.
