Thanks for your much enlightening explanation about downloads of Nirsoft security-related tools. 8)

There is some logic, after all, behind the apparent erratic behavior of DL launched indirectly from third-party sites (such as TPFC),
as opposed to straight from the developer's site.

To recap billon's finding:

Just sent him a note.

Code:
Hey I'm a moderator over at PortableFreeware.com.  We love your software and have a whole lot of entries written up highlighting your great work.

Recently we've had some users point out how some of our links have died.  Some discussion suggests that this might be for some entries and not others, and one user noted it might be a shift connected to security programs.

https://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=85743#p85743

Could you shine some light on this?

Thanks

The last message of billon is the right answer.

I moved all password-recovery downloads to toolsdownload directory in order to isolate them from the other programs. Also, downloading files from toolsdownload works only when there is HTTP referer inside the HTTP request.

Nir.

My! An answer from Nir, that's a case for celebration...;-)
(NirSoft's developer is known to be scoring rather modestly in his ratio of actual responses # / mail inquiries # .)

Teasing aside, Nir Sofer is THE unrivalled prolific developer of outstanding software tools we all freely enjoy, of course.

Further preaching to the choir, no doubt, but worth recalling all the same :

NirSoft tools benefits

  • Most utilities are written in C++, which make them fast, small and effective.
  • Nirsoft single utilities are usually less than 100KB, while many software companies
    create bloated installation packages measuring in tens of MBytes,
  • All utilities are portable and mostly don't require any installation.
  • All utilities refrain from writing anything to the Registry or to the user's profile folder.
    This means they can be used from a USB Flash drive, without leaving traces.
  • Most utilities can be used from command-line, without displaying any user interface.
  • No need to register or disclose your email in order to download from NirSoft.
  • All utilities are completely freeware, without any catch.
