Dear Oleg,

Going back to my "wish list" I have shared with you before, here are the two main issues I would like to be incorproated into the next version of OEP:

- FIX: There is something in the software that does not allow it to FULLY auto-close at the time scheduled in the Options. Perhaps it gives an error messaje at that time, and does not close, or remains partially in memory in an unstable state, or there are threads not killed.

- NEW FEATURE: I need to have the option to set at least TWO daily scheduled times for downloads.

Thank you very much.

Regarding the fix. Can you please update your oe.exe file to a newer version?

Schedule - if you need to schedule only one Project two times, I can suggest you to use Sequencer and add it there. Sequencer also has scheduler.

Today I have installed V5.2 .2848 Release (the last official), and will see what happens. Does the beta 2858 have something related with the auto-shut down feature?

I have about 150 scheduled projects, and would like many of them to download twice a day. I think that the sequencer is not a solution for this scenario...

Best regards,
Pablo.

I had some improvements in the parsing code and this may help the stability. I see about schedule. One other thing I can suggest is to use Windows scheduler to start the Project downloads.

Last friday I have upgraded from V5.1.2820 SR1 to V5.2.2848 to check for the issues in the subject. However I have had a completely new problem: some projects started to download files from URLs out of the initial server (like ads, linked notes, etc). Thus, a lot of new folders were created.
I have double checked that the configuration for that projects were "download files only from the initial server or domain", and they were correct.

To continue working, I have had to go back to V5.1.2820, and downloads were fine again.

What might be wrong ?

Thank you.

Can you try the new version of oe.exe file?

If it doesn''t help, please post the Project settings here - select it and use Export - Project Settings - Copy. Then paste it to the forum message. Also, let me know few examples what extra links were loaded (that you do not want).

Oleg.
