I checked the .csv file in the data folder and noticed the last updated date on the file was October 12 2012.

I’ve updated several times since then.

So I renamed the csv to csv.bak and updated the history again and when I scrolled through the list this time the numbering matched the number it reported it had processed.

Where is the data folder?

I’m getting the sneaky feeling I haven’t been hitting the ‘save/update’ history button when I update since October 10. :(  Though it’s rather strange that I was hitting that button before and suddenly forgot to do it anymore.

I don’t usually do that.  I could never get it to work right.  I get “nothing to save, please download current history first.”  So I download the current history, and try again, and get the same error message.

But it never mattered, because I’d just download the current history, search it, and not save it.  Since I shop a lot, I kinda had to download the current history every time anyway.  But now it’s not working.

BTW, I’ve discovered something strange. When you click the “Log In Browser” button it’s supposed to auto-login, i.e. automatically open the DAZ login page, fill in the fields and trigger the log in button, and then show the “Account Dashboard” page.

On the machine I use for developing the program it works allright, but on another, identical machine with the same OS (XP 32) it doesn’t work. It doesn’t fill in the fields or trigger the login button on the DAZ login page, as it should. The page just jumps a bit whenever I click the browser login button, like this video shows:

http://taosoft.dk/temp/hm_browserlogin01

I also have Win 7 Ultimate 64 on the second machine, and auto-login doesn’t work there either. I’ve been testing the program many times on a previous Win 7 installation on that machine, and I’m sure it worked allright there, so this is a bit of a mystery to me.

Anyone else experiencing this? I imagine that some may not know that the browser is supposed to auto-login and therefore fill in the fields and click the login button themselves, and therefore haven’t reported it

Where is the data folder?

In the folder you unzipped DHM to, you’ll see a sub folder called “Data.”  Open that and you’ll see the csv… which can then be opened in Excel and copied off as a regular spreadsheet.  Add in the missing items from the FWBundles page, and you’ve got a pretty reliable record of all your Daz purchases.  (I keep both my DHM and the excel sheet on a Jump drive so I can move it from computer to computer, just in case I have to order something while traveling.)

..yeah I’m on XP 32 and have to manually fill in the username/password fields every time.

A bit of a bother but a small one compared to the benefits the utility offers.  Being able to reset DLs for multiple items rather than one at a time is a huge time saver.

It does that if you use some of the ofher functions before saving the downloaded data. You must save the data right after downloading them, before doing anything else.

OK, thanks. Have to look into this then as it probably happens to others as well.

Thanks, that appears to have fixed my problem.  Even those weird duplicates went away.

...many thanks.

[edit]...seems a simple “thank you” is considered spam by this crappy forum software.


[rant]The more I deal with things like this the less of an “improvement” it seems, I mean, Isn’t an “upgrade” is supposed “improve”  not detract form the user’s experience?”[/rant]

Yea, I doubt that many spam messages just contain the words “thank you”. Besides, such a filter should only work for new users, not for people who have been posting for months or years.

You would actually be surprised to find out how often it does happen.

That a spam message only contains a “thank you”?

Yes.  The spam will then be in the signature bar.  As a live link taking you straight to a site.

It did that already on my machine. I’m sorry I didn’t reply at your first post about this auto login but somehow I didn’t receive notifications anymore :(
Anyhow, it works fantastic, all of them do. Your contentdownloader saves me a lot of time, thank you very, very much!! Now only DAZ has to continue the naming as it had for the MAC and the PC items! Now your program can’t find all the mac-files (I’m on a windows machine) to filter them out.  My downloadable products have reached 195 items again! (only because reset in the History Manager works great!! wink  )

Oh, I’m using the downloader at renderosity also now and there too it works like a charm, even with the few things I get it’s much easier. smile
And I forgot to test them at RDNA, next time I’ll remember.

Love, Jeanne
edited to ask: Is it maybe possible the password wil stay in the content downloader also? TIA

OK. But then you could tag the link and block all posts with that signature link.

And the filter should only work on new account, regular users usually don’t spam.

Besides, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a spam post here, are there actually any? If there are, it can’t be many.
