PS - I a still using OE 4.9 so if this has been fixed in version 5 I apologise.

Okay, is this planned for future versions / upgrades because urls that don''t work are not much use.
Given the correct case-sensitive urls appear to already be in the Descr.WD3 file, yes it does seem a relatively simple improvement to add those to exported files rather than a lowercase version.
And while I do on the whole find offline explorer pro to be excellent ( sorry I''ve posted in the wrong forum ) I find it slightly bizarre that version 5 introduces a host of dare I say, relatively unimportant UI improvements, yet leaves the key functionality that I bought the Pro version for, exporting pages, useless for any site that uses case-sensitive urls.
Whilst I appreciate you are not sure when you will able to solve this, I am really looking for a rough guide to whether it will be solved in the foreseeable future or not, as at least I can then make the decision to either hang for a while if so or find another software solution if the problem is going to remain for sometime.
So when exported, any pages downloaded and saved as default.htm still produce the lower-case URL, but now with "default.htm" appended.
For example, the url appended to the exported file for http://stuff.tv/Review/Sony-Ericsson-Xperia-X1/ becomes http://stuff.tv/review/sony-ericsson-xperia-x1/default.htm.
( In this case the fact it is lowercase doesn''t really matter as this site doesn''t use case-sensitive urls, it was simply the first example I found. It does however have default.htm appended to it, which isn''t so good )
So I guess there is no easy solution, although I assume you must have the correct case urls somewhere as OE must use them to successfully crawl case-sensitive sites, I guess I will have to try some other software.
1 - You need the IID value for any project you process exported files for, these can be found and extracted through regular expressions from the WebDown.dat file which is located in the application data folder, in windows it is something like - C:\Documents and settings\**your user name***\applications data\offline explorer\
2 - Once you have the IID value for the project you are process exported pages for then you can simply match that up to the relevant .map file, also in the application data folder, so if the IID of the site if 7020 then you want the 7020.map file.
3 - The map file contains a list of all the urls in that projects map, ( but these are the correct case-sensitive urls !), so all that needs to be done is match is a non-casesensitve match between the lowercase exported url and the url in the map file, and then extract it.
