Complete download automatization

07/28/2010 02:39 am
Hello everybody,

I need help in an automatizing problem. I want to Download a certain site once in a week.
It will be wednesday i think. So, the page should be downloaded and exported to a directory of my choice.

This process should work completely automatic with the Task-sheduler of Windows Server 2008.

I know it works with a batch file. But how dose it behave?

I'm not a professional so please be kind with me :P And my english isn't even the best, so I hope you can understand everything.

with best regards,

Yes, you would have to setup a Project to do this download and use an AutoExport command in its URLs field (read more about AutoExport in the Help file).

To start with Windows Scheduler, use the command line:

"c:\program files\Offline Explorer Pro\oe.exe" "Folder Name/0" /CloseNoCountdown

Please read more about Command Line parameters in the Help file as well.

Best regards,

Thank you for the quick reply.

Okay i use this makro to autoexport:


when the auto export ist ready, is it able to let the sheduler know its ready and close the application?

I don't know how to right that..

I even have to reply a bug I think.

In our office we have an domestic wiki-page. Just the staff is able to see this wiki.

If i want to download the wiki, many problems appier.

There are 8000 links to be downloaded. If i set the hook at translated: "try to search in all subdirectories"
in the properties, the queue jumps up to 200.000... It wants to download many wired links, that aren't even available. The application creates new links like for example: /Biography/Science/Main_Page/Contents /Biography/Science/Main_Page/Contents /Biography/Science/Main_Page/Contents /Biography/Science
and so on. 200.000 ....

Yes, it looks like some bug with this "all subdirectories" option. Is there any public site where this behavior reproduces?

The other question - the /CloseNoCountdown means it will wait until the download completes and export as well. Only after that it will close Offline Explorer Pro.
