How does Flashgot work with portable DL Managers?
« on: March 09, 2009, 04:36 PM »
Would any of you please tell me exactly how to manage Flashgot (it's a firefox add-on/extension for download managers) so it will properly detect my portable download-manager applications?

In Flshgot-Options window:
I've tried to manually select & add the location of my portable download manager to the list of executables (list of available Download Managers on my machine) to detect when I want to download files:

When I add a portable download managers-program to that list, Flashgot brings up a window with a box that has "[URL]" in it. I don't know what I should do with that. So I just click OK, and move on.

Flashgot will detect my portable download managers, but whenever I click on a download-link, Flashgot has some sort of problem transferring the download-job to my portable application.

Please try Flashgot with a portable-download manager & tell me if it works well for you. I know it works with non-portable download manager-programs.

Screenshot (Example) of a non-portable DL Manager being added to that Flashgot-Options list of DL Managers to use when downloading a file (notice you have to select the location of the Manager application before Flashgot detects it:
