Download Resume?

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to create a download resume script for an executable posted on a website. I've been following this posting and the OP says it was figured out, but I just don't know where to go from there since there was no follow up. I guess I just need a good kick in the right direction...

Here's what I have so far...it's for downloading a game update from EVE Online's website:


#include <IE.au3>
#include <String.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ProgressConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

;Eve Test
Local $Form1, $Progress1
Local $oIE, $oLink, $oLinks, $oTable, $aTableData
Local $size, $download, $newbuild, $bytes, $conn, $dl, $h, $sock, $listen
Local $ini = "C:\Games\EVE\common.ini"
Local $build = IniRead($ini, "main", "build", "85476")

;Create a GUI with a progress indicator for download status
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Eve Online Update", 294, 56, 192, 124)
$Progress1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(8, 8, 275, 20)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel(".", 50, 36, 275)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

;Create a 'behind-the-scenes' browser object
GUICtrlSetData($Label1, "Getting download information...")
$oIE = _IECreate("http://www.eveonline.com/patches/patches.asp?s=&system=win&edition=&n="&$build, 0, 0, 1)

;Grab all the links on the page so we can specifically grab the exe's link
$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
;Grab all the table info to set the build variables with the proper info
$oTable = _IETableGetCollection($oIE, 0)
$aTableData = _IETableWriteToArray($oTable)
For $oLink In $oLinks
    If StringInStr($oLink.href, ".exe") Then $download = $oLink.href

;Set the latest build's version to a variable
GUICtrlSetData($Label1, "Getting latest build info...")
$newbuild = StringSplit($aTableData[1][1], " ")

;Check to see if the version needs updating. If it's up to date, then exit.
If $build == $newbuild[7] Then Exit

;Attempting a resume...
;Get the size of the patch
$size =InetGetSize($download)
;Check to see if the patch has been downloaded - partially or not
If FileExists(@TempDir&"\evepatch "&$build&" to "&$newbuild[7]&".exe") = 1 Then
    $bytes = FileGetSize(@TempDir&"\evepatch "&$build&" to "&$newbuild[7]&".exe")
    $ip = TCPNameToIP("www.eveonline.com")
    $conn = TCPConnect($ip, 80)
    If $conn = -1 Or @error Then
        MsgBox(0, "", "TCP Error")
    GUICtrlSetData($Progress1, Ceiling($bytes/$size)*100)
    $string = StringSplit($download, "/")
    ;MsgBox(0, "", $download & @CRLF & "/"&$string[4]&"/"&$string[5])
    $h  = "GET /"&$string[4]&"/"&$string[5]&" HTTP/1.0" & @CRLF
    $h &= "Referer: "&$download & @CRLF
    $h &= "Range: bytes=" & $bytes & "-" & @CRLF
    $h &= "User-Agent: AutoIt3" & @CRLF
    $h &= "Host: " & @IPAddress2 & @CRLF
    $h &= "Pragma: no-cache" & @CRLF
    $h &= @CRLF
    MsgBox(0, "", $h)
    TCPSend($conn, $h)

    $listen = TCPListen(@IPAddress2, 80)

    While 1
        $sock = TCPAccept($listen)
        If $sock > -1 Then
            $data = ""
            While not @error
                FileWrite(@TempDir&"\evepatch "&$build&" to "&$newbuild[7]&".exe", $data)
                $data = TCPRecv($sock, 2048)
                GUICtrlSetData($Label1, "Downloading..."&($bytes/1024)&"kb of "&Round($size/1024, 0)&"kb")
                GUICtrlSetData($Progress1, Ceiling($bytes/$size)*100)
    ;Start Downloading the patch and show the progress bar.
    GUICtrlSetData($Label1, "Starting download...")
    InetGet($download, @TempDir&"\evepatch "&$build&" to "&$newbuild[7]&".exe", 1, 1)

    ;Loop showing the active status of the progress bar
    While @InetGetActive
        GUICtrlSetData($Label1, "Downloading..."&(@InetGetBytesRead/1024)&"kb of "&Round($size/1024, 0)&"kb")
        GUICtrlSetData($Progress1, Ceiling((@InetGetBytesRead/$size)*100))

Run(@TempDir&"\evepatch "&$build&" to "&$newbuild[7]&".exe", @TempDir)

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 1)
WinWait("EVE Online Update", "")
;_FileWriteLog($patchlog, "Update for EVE found...")
$title = WinGetTitle("EVE Online Update", "")
$patchversion = _StringBetween($title, "EVE Online Update ", " Setup")
ControlClick("EVE Online Update", "", "Button2")
If WinExists("EVE Online Update", "The Update Wizard will install") = 1 Then ControlClick("EVE Online Update", "The Update Wizard will install", "Button1")
WinWait("EVE Online Update", "Installation Complete")
ControlClick("EVE Online Update", "Installation Complete", "Button2")
WinWait("EVE Online Update", "Completing the EVE Online Update", 20)
ControlClick("EVE Online Update", "Completing the EVE Online Update", "Button2")

I actually made this, but I don't think this will work Correctly!! give it a try!!

NB: uses the pause key to change the value of $Pause

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

AdlibEnable("DL") ; this keeps running at all times till you exit.
HotKeySet("{pause}", "pauseset"); uses the pause key to change the value of $Pause
$Pause = -1
Func pauseset()
    $Pause = $Pause * - 1
EndFunc   ;==>pauseset
$GUI = GUICreate("GUI", 400, 60, -1, -1)
$GUIProgress = GUICtrlCreateProgress(10, 10, 380, 40)
Func DL()
    $total = InetGetSize("http://www.informs-sim.org/wsc05papers/015.pdf")
    InetGet("http://www.informs-sim.org/wsc05papers/015.pdf", "015.pdf", 1, 1)
    While $Pause = -1
        If @InetgetBytesRead <> "-1" Then
            If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
            $count = @InetgetBytesRead
            $iPercentage = Round(($count / $total) * 100)
            GUICtrlSetData($GUIProgress, $iPercentage)
EndFunc   ;==>DL

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()

    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop

Thanks for the reply, but I don't think this will resume a previously started download. I need to be able to start a download, then quit the script. Then when the script is started again, it will start the download right where it was before without having to re-download the file all over again.

InetGet() is great for when I start the download, but I want to resume from where the download stopped when the script is restarted. I'm looking to use HTTP/1.1 to resume the download for the file. The GET command should work, but I can't get the details right. Any ideas?

not something I've tried or know anything about. Found an interesting link about it here:


Only thing I can see is in your code, the first $h = line where you setup the GET request, you've specified HTTP/1.0 - should this not be HTTP/1.1 as only HTTP/1.1 supports resumes ie:

change: $h = "GET /"&$string[4]&"/"&$string[5]&" HTTP/1.0" & @CRLF

to: $h = "GET /"&$string[4]&"/"&$string[5]&" HTTP/1.1" & @CRLF

You might also want to try using the Microsoft.XMLHTTP object to do the GET request.
