The new version works beautifully, even if I leave it open overnight.  Could you do the same to the Downloader?

Should be working now, here’s a test version:

Yes, DAZ has made changes to their site so currently both the History Manager and the Content Downloader are broken. I’m working on updating them, hope to have them fixed soon…

You’re welcome… smile

Here are some temporary updates that should fix the current problems:

History Manager:
http://taosoft.dk/software/dazhm/updates/dazhm-a0534a-installer.zip

Content Downloader:
http://taosoft.dk/software/3dcdl-daz/updates/3dcdl-daz-a1099b-installer.zip

Note that they may not work correctly if you have less than 50 files in your history or on your download pages - I’m currently unable to test this so I can’t say for sure. I hope to have this tested and if necessary fixed soon. Next release will probably be an auto-update.

Also note that if you have many files ( > 500) on your download pages the downloader may be slow to respond when you click the Start (download) button. Some other functions may be slow too. It shouldn’t do this, so I’m currently looking into it. Apart from this it should work allright though. It does take some time to get/update the file list if there are many files but that’s how it is, it cannot work faster than it does in this respect.

Not sure what’s wrong here - installing Flash (64 bit version on 64 bit systems) use to solve the problem. Could be a problem with your Flash installation. In any case, Flash is not necessary for the program anyway , it’s just the browser that asks for it, so you can just ignore it.

Thanks for the updates.

I’ve been meaning to ask, is there a reason it downloads products in reverse alphabetical order?

Not sure what you mean? In both programs the products are listed in the same order as they are listed on the DAZ pages as the programs read the pages in numerical order top-down. Files you download with the downloader are likewise downloaded in the same order as they are listed. It doesn’t sort them in any way. If they happen to be in reverse alphabetical order it’s purely by coincidence (unless the DAZ pages can be sorted that way but there’s no option for that yet AFAIK).

It would be handy to be able to sort by purchase date instead, though. With the downloads, it would be handy to be able to sort by downloads left, perhaps, as that’s a good way of identifying a product that hasn’t been downloaded yet, and it’s easy to miss a 4 (or a 5) in the list if you’ve got a lot of available downloads to scroll through.

I’m having a problem. With each program I try to log in to, it tells me that that either I’m not logging in properly or the site is down…

You can just use the “Download and clear selected files” option, which will reset Downloads Left to zero when a file has been sucessfully downloaded. The “Do not show files with 0 downloads left” filter (under “Settings”) will then hide them.

The other option “Clear selected files” will clear the files without downloading them, you can get rid of files you already have downloaded that way.

Sure your login data are correct? If yes, do you have any unusual characters in your password?

The other option “Clear selected files” will clear the files without downloading them, you can get rid of files you already have downloaded that way.

The first time you use the software, you still have to check to see if there’s anything you haven’t downloaded yet. I found two product files I’m pretty sure I didn’t download before, and I hope I didn’t miss any, because I did clear the downloads afterward, so it would be easier to see what I’m doing from now on.

But forcing the Downloads Left to zero makes me uncomfortable, to be honest. I worry that I’ll need to reset the file again because I’ve actually missed something after all, or because I can’t figure out where the files installed, or any of a number of other reasons. (Maybe just because I’m an insecure pack rat….) A local record that the file has been downloaded on a certain date would seem to make sense. I made that suggestion in your thread about these utilities, once I found it. ;)
