Recommended Posts

vij

This gives me a file autoit-v3-setup.exe that is 0 kb :pirate: What really is the problem ? Any idea

InetGet("http://www.autoitscript.com/cgi-bin/getfile.pl?autoit3/autoit-v3-setup.exe", "D:\autoit-v3-setup.exe", 1)

Gracias for any help :)

It works for me as written, except I don't have a D: drive, but other than that it works fine.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

The file is 0 Kb until the download is finished

InetGet("http://www.autoitscript.com/cgi-bin/getfile.pl?autoit3/autoit-v3-setup.exe", "D:\autoit-v3-setup.exe", 1)
Msgbox(0,"", "finished")

Maybe you don't have sufficient permissions to write to D:. It doesn't matter if you are administrator if you run modern windows systems, you would still need to #RequireAdmin. Better solution is to simply use location you can write to (AppdataDir for example).

Oops... the file now shows as downloaded fully... maybe it just took a while... silly me :zorro:

The file is 0 Kb until the download is finished

Correct mikel

This was a test ex...I was not able to do it for a particular dynamic url(requiring the user to be logged in) so thought this would be the same... I will get back with more info :)

Guys

I have a dowload link which works only if I am logged into the site. So I login to the site(used _IE UDF) etc and then extracted the download link and then used it like this

InetGet("https://ahrefs.com/site-explorer/explorer_export.php?hash=07583511eee6896bb08af2edfe3bfdf1&export_type=3&tab=backlinks&charset=utf-8&backlinks_type=not_sitewide-href-all-all-all&unique_domains=1", "D:\testers.csv", 1)

But it doesnt download - gives me tester.csv with 0 kb.

But when I type that url into the browser, I am able to manually download... Whats going on guys.

Gius, please note you cannot use that link to manually download yourself(paid membership site) as one needs to be logged into the site to download(I am logged in using _IE stuff and still cant download)

Any ideas?

From the help file:

To use a username and password when connecting simply prefix the servername with "username:password@", e.g.

"http://myuser:mypassword@www.somesite.com"

This might be all you'd need to change.

I tried. Doesnt work.. I think that is for a site that requires username and password to even open a page. This site doesnt need that to connect. It is open for all, but only needs user to be logged in for the extracted download link to function.
