Still having a problem with Downloader downloading webbotlib on my machine. From the interface, it looks as though it's checking for the latest version (v1.28) and sees it, then displays a checkmark. But my filesystem doesn't contain v1.28.
Are there any requirements for where Downloader needs to be or what install directories I need to use?
I noticed the Webbot Apps automatically create a default webbotlib directory in my Macintosh HD/Users/ directory, though I prefer to use my own location. Would this have something to do with it? The only thing in it is a directory called "Download" with a single file within called "launcher.xml"
Two other things: 1) It seems Downloader displays download progress per file rather than total download (most noticeable with the HTML docs) - at least I think this is why the percentage jumps around. No problem if this was intentional, but I'd argue that a total download progress percentage might be more useful.
2) When choosing a download directory for an application, Downloader does not automatically select the current directory you're in if you don't specify a directory from the list.
Both minor nitpicks, but I thought they'd be worth bringing up. Otherwise, everything works great!
In separate news, the type that will make you hit your head on the wall . . . I now need to click through about 300 'Applet Alert' windows before Webbot Download finishes it's job. Supposedly it has something to do with the Java sandbox . . .So . . . did you change something, or did the network admins make another draconian change behind my back? And better yet, any ideas on how I can disable the Applet Alert for Webbot Download?
