Bonjour,
I've posted something in the bug report section but I give it a shot here too since I believe the original post should have been here in the first place.

Lately, when I open Autoget, as soon as a fil get to download, mIRC just crash. Anyone experiencing the same thing?

Explain what Autoget is first.

AutoGet is not designed to work with any version of mIRC newer than 6.21 and has not been supported since 6.21 was updated. My suggestion, stop using AutoGet and find a copy of VPowerGet

to argv0: Autoget is an automated download manager (part of the OmeNServE group of scripts).

Thank you CtrlAltDel, I did not know of the vPowerGet which I will download and try right away. I am deeply sorry about autoget, I though I was the only one, at the time, not knowing what Autoget was, I guess I was not the only one.

Again, thanks to all of you who took some of their time tom answer me.

Regards,

Well, not sure if it is me not able to work with vPowerGet but it is not as effective as autoget could be.

Is there any way to "auto-connect" to you list of channel? Is there a way to make sure your search actually gets into the vpowerget? As it is right now, only 1 out of 5 gets in the search list in vpowerget, everything gets in the list but in mirc only?

Is there a forum where I can get these answer as I guess this is not the right place?

Thanks, if you can help me a bit more CtrlAltDel it'll be appreciated.

I know this thread is 5 years old, but does ANYONE know where to get vPowerGet? All previous hosts are long gone. Or is there a new program that does the same thing?

You can always try the Internet Archive/Wayback Machine - just take the URL that you're given, and prepend "http://web.archive.org/web/*/" to it (e.g., if the original URL is "http://www.example.com/", use "http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.example.com/"); that will give you a list of occasions when the Wayback Machine took a snapshot of the URL. It doesn't always get you what you're looking for - sometimes a linked page wasn't crawled, or a robots.txt blocked access, or something like that, but it's worked for me surprisingly often.

I would, however, be wary of doing so with regards to addons for programs; if you have to resort to this, chances are that the addon is no longer supported, and there will be a significant risk that it won't work, and may even do damage. With mIRCScript addons, you can at least examine the code and see if it's doing anything that would be problematical with versions of mIRC later than it was last updated for. That does require a fairly solid knowledge of mIRCScript in both the current implementation and the version that was current at the time the addon was last updated.

Nahh just use cURL the better from all download tool, and you can easy run it from the mIRC via /run command (because a command line tool) and you can download/upload anything anywhere.. 10/10

1. I wasn't aware that cURL was a download manager (to replace AutoGet or VPowerGet), as the original poster wanted; rather, it looks like the core tool that could be used for the downloading function in a script - provided that you didn't want such things as resumability of partial downloads or accumulation of URLs for later downloading, which I assume that any competent download manager will support. Can you explain how cURL in isolation handles this?

2. I also wasn't aware that it was a way to find a file when the known sites for downloading said file have closed or otherwise no longer seem to host the file requested; could you explain how that's done? (This was my purpose in providing links to the Wayback Machine.)
