I wonder if anyone can assist with a problem I`m having with Offline Explorer Enterprise Edition 3.8.2028. I`m passing a command line request to download a project regularly, and for some of the files requested I get errors in the log as below:

[17/12/2005 01:32:10] HTTP7: Connecting to host intranet...

[17/12/2005 01:32:27] HTTP8: Read Transaction complete. Status: 500 Server/Gateway error.

where I`ve replaced the URL/local path to the file and its referrer with <LOCAL FILE PATH TO FILE>, <HTTP PATH TO FILE> and <HTTP PATH TO FILE REFERRER>. If I manually try the same kind of download accessing this same page but coming from OE on another machine, I see no problems. If I directly go to the page in question, I also see no errors - HTML 500 or otherwise.

Has anybody experienced this issue/can anybody suggest any possible fixes or workarounds?

Can you try to disable MS IE cookies in the Options dialog - perhaps the difference is in this line.
