I am evaluating the trial version of offline explorer pro. I was wondering if I would be able to capture a website located on the Wayback Machine. I only want to capture a specific website. Whenever I try to do this the most I can get is the home page of the URL without any images. When I go to click on a tab on the website, I usually get a "not in archive" message.

Redownload your project and let me know how it works.
It seems the website is down. Once it comes back online I will test your patch out and let you know how it works.
Thanks alot for working on this.
To run the patched version I just subsituted the exe patch file with the original one that was already in the offline explorer pro folder on my computer. I then started the program from the exe patch file.
I used default settings except for downloading all files and load files only within the starting server. Are there specific settings that you used to get it to work, along with the patch?
Thank You for the help.
Preferably, I would like to be able to download each date seperatly.
Create a new Project using it with:
in the URL Filters - Directory - Included keywords list and download it.
In fact, it will load some pages from other dates, because they were not changed since that date. For example, follow the above link and then click SOLUTION in the site menu. You will get a different date for that page:
Clicking HOME from that page gives yet another date:
So, this site doesn''t allow to isolate dates at all.
Thank you so much for all your help!!
Quick question. When I put in the /www.ancoratech.com/ in the URL filters -Directory filters to have it included, do I put a check in the check box where it says "load only files within the starting directory"? I ran it twice so far and I did not put a check in that box and its worked great. I was just curious if thats what you were doing, or if you were leaving it uncheck also.
Thanks again. Amazing customer service!!
Thanks again for all the help.
I just got an error that said "List index out of bounds(3)" when I was downloading a website. The download didn''t stop or anything like that. I clicked OK and it just continued capturing the website. What does the error mean? I wasn''t sure if it had anything to do with the patch which is why I am asking in here instead of making a new topic about it.
I am getting an error. The application is shutting down by itself after running for awhile. Besides capturing the website, I was not performing any other actions. It just recently shut down after capturing around 63,000 files from one website. In the event viewer in Windows Server 2003 64bit I am getting this as the error:
Faulting application OE.EXE, version 18.104.22.16860, faulting module kernel32.dll, version 5.2.3790.4062, fault address 0x00022366.
Let me know if you need any other information.
Just got another errror. This time it was just a popup where I had to hit OK. It didn''t stop the program at all. It continued to run after I hit OK too. The error was:
Access violation at address 006F427B in module ''OE.exe''. Read of address 6C0F592C.
It does. It consumes about 178,980K of memory. In the status bar it says "downloading" but it flashes "parsing" but it only is parsing 1 or 2 things. The only time I''ve seen it parsing alot of messages was when I''ve used the option "Download missing files".
I will try unchecking the "Use alternative connections method" box.
You need to browse to the logon page of the site using the internal Browser of Offline Explorer Pro .
If you need to download the site immediately and only once, you can proceed with the logon and begin downloading the desired pages using Offline Explorer Pro . The program will use the session cookies of the logged on site from the internal browser.
You can also record the logon form contents in a Project, so that Offline Explorer Pro will know how to log itself on whenever you wish to download the site. This is useful when you want to schedule the site download or perform it later, or if you want to update the downloaded site in the future.
Once you have entered your username and password on the logon page in the internal browser, press and hold the Alt + Ctrl keys on your keyboard, click the Logon (or Submit) button in the Web form and release the keyboard buttons. You should get a new Project that contains the Web form information recorded in the URL field.
Adjust the Project settings as you wish (set the Level and other parameters) and click the OK button to save the Project. You may begin downloading at any time.
It is also recommended to make sure that the "Use alternate connection method" box is checked in the Internet tab of the Ribbon.
Note: The form recording method is supported only in the Pro and Enterprise editions of Offline Explorer.
Unzip the file and replace the old oe.exe file with the new one. This may
help to improve memory usage.
Also, I did both methods you told me for capturing a protected forum and neither of them worked. I tried both methods on one forum and it just keeps capturing the website like its not logged onto the forum so I don''t get much except the login page.
I tried it on another forum and when I open up default.htm to see the website, it won''t load. Says Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage. I''ve never had this problem before, I''ve always just had the above problem about just getting the login page.
It seems like when I log into the webpage through the internet browser associated with OEP I am able to browse the site with no problems, but right when I start the capture of the site, I get logged out of the website in the browser. This could posibbly be why I keep on only capturing the login page or the home page but without being logged in.
Would it help? If not, send me the details to firstname.lastname@example.org.

So I would just add this line after the URL address, in the same box?
When I go to open the file default.htm that takes me to a page that has the website link on, which I would usually click on to open the website offline, does not work. Basically says Internet Explorer Cannot Display Webpage. I was able to circumvent this by finding another default.htm file. This one opened directly to the webpage. I was then able to browse offline without any issues.
When I downloaded another forum, the same thing happened with the first default.htm file. However, there were no more default.htm files for me to open. So essentially I cannot browse the webpage offline.
The first default.htm file used to always work and let me browse the website offline, but now it doesn''t seem to work with the forums. Is there a way to resolve this?
Also, when I tried downloading 2 of the forums at once, I got an "Invalid Pointer Operation" error. Downloading one at a time didn''t cause this error.
The patch you had me download works great though. I only get about 50K memory usage now with it. No issues with it shutting down.
An easy way to see the location of Download Directory is to select a Project, click Properties button and press Ctrl button on keyboard. The path will show in the lower-left corner on the dialog.
Another way is to select a folder that contains the Projects and click Properties to see the corresponding setting.
If you want, you can send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I emailed you a username and password to use. Did you get it?
Just wanted to make sure.
It''s alright. I at least know that you got the username/password I sent you and that you are working on it.
Thanks again for all the help.
Not only is this product great, but it continues to get better thanks to your excellent customer support.
So, this is a win-win cooperation.
