Reliable File Downloader using Autoit?

4 posts in this topic

hello, I was wondering how reliable a File Downloader using Autoit would be... I need to download a bunch of files totaling up too around 2 gigs...

the files range in size and would like to make a progress bar for the progress of the current file and the total progress... if it wasn't for this i'd just use something like wget, but my users want to see the progress and time remaining.

I'm asking this, because in the past i've had some issues with the GUI not redrawing itself and the user thinking the app was frozen... closed it while it was doing an operation that lead to problems later on..

It's as reliable as anything else... was there a question other than that?

The operational performance of INetGet has been improved in the latter AutoIt Beta's. Perhaps that was the issue before?

:D

can we make a reliable downloader with AutoIT? Yes, with some effort.

However if you are downloading files via HTTP, you can get into trouble if you want to show the remaining download time, because some web servers dont give you any information about the file size, so there is no way to calculate the remaining download time. Maybe you want to provide more information here...

Regarding the "frozen" GUI: I cannot say anything without any further information.

Cheers
