OE can't convert button link for offline browsing

First off I must say (like you'll realize) I'm new in this.
I've downloades a site (http://www.mansioningles.com) and everything goes fine until I try to browse the page http://www.mansioningles.com/listening00.htm offline. When I select an item from the combo box (Nivel basico) and click the "ir a listening" button a message like this is showed:
Firefox can't find the file C:/downloads/www.mansioningles.com/procesalistening1.asp.
However, even though the combo box item points to "procesalistening1.asp", when I browse the page online this link redirect to me towards pages like this one: http://www.mansioningles.com/listening00.htm.
And this page (http://www.mansioningles.com/listening00.htm) is downloaded by OE with no problems but I have to access it by clicking the corresponding file from Windows Explorer; I mean, I can't access it from by first selecting the combo box and then clicking the "ir a listening" button.

Can it be solved in someway?

Thanks for any help.

Do you have Processing HTML Forms enabled in the Project Properties dialog - Advanced?

I had it disabled. I enabled it and selected the option "Download missing files". About 150 new links have been downloaded.
I can access from the combo box most of items offline, but only from within OE internal explorer. When I try to access from Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox I get the same error as before.

Any suggestion?

Yes, this is true. Browsers do not support forms when they read files from the disk. Offline Explorer emulates a Web site using its internal Web server and it works.

So... there is no way of getting standard explorers working with forms read from the disk?

No. You can either view them inside Offline Explorer or export to EXE file.

Now, I can browse the site offline but only from whitin OE, because when exporting to .exe some forms (I don't know why some of those yes, and some not) are not loaded.
Is there something to do for solving this?
Ah, a few links, although they were downloaded, the page links doesn't point to local addresses.
Can I fix manually or in someway?

Thanks

Can you tell me, which exact forms work in EXE and which - not?

Some of the links which doesn't work when exporting to .exe are:

I start at home page (http://www.mansioningles.com). To the left, I click on "Gramatica". Then, I select the combo box for "Sustantivos".

First item works fine when exporting to .exe.
Second doesn?t.
Third doesn?t.
Fourth works.
Fifth (just in case.... "Sustantivos compuestos") works
Sixth works.
Seventh doesn?t.

For the "Adjetivos" combo box only the two first items don't work, all others works.

And that happens (in a similar way) with all combo boxes from "gramatica".

The error messages showed are like this one:

Document not found
This page is not accessible offline. Possible reasons: either it was an invalid link
on the server or Project settings do not allow the page to be downloaded.

inicia=leccion+6&aceptarinicia=ir+a+leccion
---------

Moreover, when I click "Curso Aprendizaje" from within the home page and then try to access
the combo boxes items, none of them is avaible, but they're avaible if I browse the page with
OE browser.

---------

Furthermore, the following links don't work when exporting to .exe file nor from within
OE explorer.

Home page -> to the left, click "listening".
In both combo boxes all items work but there's a problem whit the three first in
the "Nivel Basico" combo box.
After selecting the item and clicking "ir a listening" i'm redirected with no problems.
However, the audio files (when I mouse-over them) points to internet addresses
instead local. In spite of this, the audio files are downloaded to my HD.
Can I fix that manually or something?

Thanks.

Thanks Oleg! Now It works!!

All links didn't work before, do now, when exporting to .exe.

However, I must tell you there are two (and possibly more - I didn't try all links though I tried many of them) that don't.

From the left menu, click on "Gramatica", then go to the combo box named "Articulos".

First (just in case.. "Articulo indeterminado") and third combo box items don't work, although they do when browsing from within internal Offline Explorer browser.


Thanks again

OK. Done. All links of the first combo on http://www.mansioningles.com/Gramatica.htm work now. Are there any other link that doesn't work?

I'm sorry Oleg, but It's still not working for me. I remade the .exe file but nothing change. I downloaded the 4.6.2554 version but It still don't work with the items I told you.
the error message says:

But.. If you tested them and they worked fine, then It's gotta be a problem with my computer.


anyway, Thanks a lot Oleg.
