Crashes after a few minutes. Tried it on 3 different computers XP SP2. No matter what settings I use, it crashed due to “runtime error” and msvcr80.dll error. I tried all suggestions I could find from others who have same problem, short of just uninstalling it. Tried the lite version as some suggested. Crashed even quicker. Finally downloaded previous version 755 build 742… so far so good. But I’m not holding my breath. Too bad these guys can’t get a handle on the crashing problem, if you google it you’ll find out how common the problems are
Great product. Just one suggestion, though: consider adding a clipboard monitoring mode that doesn’t cause a task switch / open dialog, and instead simply starts the download using default options automatically.
I’d make it toggleable in an easily accessible location like the status bar or toolbar, as well as tray icon menu, as one generally doesn’t want clipboard monitoring on all the time.
An old download manager I used to use, FileHound, had this as its main mode of operation, and I miss it so.
I have been using FDM for quite sometime now. It is such a wonderful download manager. I was more than happy with it until recently. Recently, it has started freezing while downloading from p2p networks. Worse still, when I click for update now, it says I am using the latest version. What could be the problem then. Please help.
