Hello,

Could you please tell me, may I start several copies of OE simultaneously? I know that OE may download several sites at the same time, but we can`t control download behaviour...For instance we can`t dedicate 2 threads for site #1 and 2 threads for site #2

Thank you

Best wishes,
Sergey

You can do it in two ways. First is to run several instances. Use the following command-line parameter:

oe.exe /instance

Another way is to add the following line to each Project`s URLs field:

Channels=2

This will limit the number of downloading channges for each Project to 2. The Projects will be downloaded in parallel.

Thank you, Oleg! Great program!!
BTW, we may download the same project in 2 instances?

Yes, sure. But why do you need that? You may also create two separate Projects in the same instance of Offline Explorer Pro and load them together.

Thank you, Oleg.
You mean that simultaneous download of 3 sites (4 channels per site) will be reliable and fast as in case of 3 separate instances?

Yes, there will be no difference. All downloading queues are separate in 3.x versions of Offline Explorer.

Thank you!
I see strange things with one OE using...I started 3d site (in addition to 2 large sites) in the same OE and after 5-6 hours this site still not downloaded at all (Channels=4 for all and max 12 threads used) - I saw no activity for 3d site (just start page downloaded)...
Could you please clarify this issue?
Thank you!

How many channels are actually occupied with the other 2 Projects? Do you have files in the queue of the 3rd Project, which is still not downloaded?

Oleg, I have 4 channels per each project...Yes, I had files in the queue for 3rd project...
BTW, I started instances using to eliminate problem :)

If you would ever face this problem, can you try to press F9 twice? This may help.
