Since Eagleget included extension isn't working for Firefox 64 bits (or similar derivatives, like Pale Moon or Cyberfox), the Flashgot extension (http://flashgot.net/) provides for a workaround; please see:

v1.1.8.2

TO THE ADMINISTRATOR OF TPFC:
I just started to use EagleGet and there isn't any registry entry as you have noted under "Stealth".

@Midas:
To get the extension to work, open EagleGet click Configuration->Monitoring and put a check mark in the box next to "Enable Browser Monitoring".

v1.1.8.2

It seems that the portable version is still 1.1.8.2, while the installer version is 1.1.8.3.

v1.1.8.3

Midas 2014-06-05 10:08

@smaragdus: you're right, I'm really sorry. Before I revert the update and to be sure it isn't just a packaging incident, have you tried replacing executables between versions?

v1.1.8.3

smaragdus 2014-06-05 21:06

@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.

v1.1.8.3

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):

The latest version of EagleGet Portable is 2.0.2.8 (Updated: January 07, 2015).

v2.0.2.3

@ smaragdus: Thanks ... and updated ;)

Tried every DM and app I had to download some troublesome audio files and decided to give this a try. Added the download link and it worked without any special configuration. Thumbs up!

v2.0.3.8

EagleGet creates a Registry entry at HKCU\Software\EagleGet. To prevent it from doing so check the box located at "Configurations->General->Disable Automatic Update Check" then delete the Registry entry. Thereafter, you can check for updates manually from the pull-down menu.

v2.0.3.8

rbon 2015-05-30 16:12

I confirm that has written 'Joe': even the last version (2.0.3.9) writes a Registry entry at 'HKCU\Software\EagleGet'.
The exact key is:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\EagleGet]
"FirstInst"=dword:00000001
"UpdateTime"=dword:016c6798
but after first run it creates in '(PortableApps)\EagleGet\configs' the file 'portable.dat' with these rows:
--------------
[GENERAL]
first_run=0
--------------
So I think I will create a text file with name 'portable.dat' with the rows above before launch the first time this program.

v2.0.3.9

jessharpur 2015-08-03 04:22

Version 2.0.4.3 neither writes anything to the registry, nor adds any files into system folders. Probably wise to check in 'Configurations' though, where there are options which can affect the local system.

v2.0.4.3

@Midas
You might like to re-check EagleGet's portable status. I had an email conversation with the devs a few versions ago about writing to the registry etc., and as far as I can tell they have acted upon it. On my system, a registry search for "eagle" produces no hits, regardless of the status of auto-update check in EagleGet|Configurations. Older versions also put the file EagleGet.sys in the System32 folder, but that behaviour also seems to have been corrected.
Hope this helps.

v2.0.4.4

jessharpur 2015-08-20 01:54

@Midas - sorry if I mistakenly tagged you. Perhaps I should have tagged @Checker ?

v2.0.4.4

Midas 2015-08-26 13:39

@jessharpur: thanks. No problem as comments are public -- but such details are usually debated at the forum, where they get more attention (follow double-balloon icon, second to last from the entry's header).

v2.0.4.4
