WideStream download manager

Post by twanj » Tue Aug 04, 2009 5:48 pm

I just came across this new-ish dm, it seems really nice. open source, windows only written in .NET. it doesn't have an installer, so no default location...

could FG add autodetection for WideStream?

Probably there is no need to autodetect location of WideStream. When WideStream is first lunched it automatically creates a registry entry HKCU/Software/WideStream/StartupPath that contains its full startup path. This entry is beign updated each time an application is ran - so if you move its binaries from folder to folder it will always remember the last location.
This registry key is already used by WideStream to implement integration with MSIE and Opera.
