Free Download Manager v3.9.4 build 1482 Updated

Checker on 16 Dec 2014

Free Download Manager (FDM) is a feature-rich tool for handling and accelerating downloads. Includes a site explorer, offline website downloader, scheduler, video downloader (YouTube, Google Video, etc.), BitTorrent support, and more. An included media file preview prevents downloading mislabeled music or video while a ZIP file preview tool saves download time and bandwidth by selectively removing unneeded parts. A hash check capability can verify downloads and the program can be controlled remotely over the Internet (fdmwi.exe).

Especially useful to overcome unreliable/slow connections that require frequent download restarts, when bandwidth is at a premium, or for very large files.

Alternatively, Free Download Manager Portable is available, as well as a "lite" version, which has not been tested or portability.

The PAF launcher isnt really stealth either (unless you already have these registry keys,which I didnt),
it creates several registry entries for me:

Keys added:4

@Midas
No, I haven't. I have noticed that the developer(s) of EagleGet doesn't update the portable builds regularly- they are usually behind the installation package, as far as I know there have been only 4 portable versions- 1.1.0.3, 1.1.7.6, 1.1.7.9 and 1.1.8.2.

Mike.S.G. on 2014-06-05 21:40

The file is still at 1182 as of a few hours ago. I keep previous versions should an update fail, comparing the hashes - they match. No, I didn't bother extracting the zip to be sure, not sure how an update could have the same sha-256, I suppose it's possible.

This is what I get:

EagleGet 1182 portable zip (sha-256):

hmm. on first run it seems to be connecting to google and gstatic for some reason and then it connects to "gameanyone.com" later

apometron on 2014-08-02 23:22

Problems with this project. It do not run on Windows 8.1 and it seems the MSI of the last version is corrupted. Could the author make the software Windows 8-friendly?
