  1. I'm trying to do the batch downloading via aria2 but I think it needs the complete link to the file. I switched to wget but I can't get it to work when I try to download de Spanish locale version of this file (just trying it as an example): wget -o wget.log -d --referer=http://www.microsoft.com "http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/ES-ES/confirmation.aspx?familyid=5b33b5a8-5e76-401f-be08-1e1555d4f3d4&displaylang=ES-ES" <wget output> Deciding whether to enqueue "http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/info.aspx?na=41&SrcFamilyId=5B33B5A8-5E76-401F-BE08-1E1555D4F3D4&SrcDisplayLang=es&u=http%3a%2f%2fdownload.microsoft.com%2fdownload%2f9%2f4%2f2%2f942080a4-ba69-496b-a379-d3b26d37b647%2fWindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ESN.exe". Going to "downloads" would escape "downloads/ES-ES" with no_parent on. Decided NOT to load it. </wget output> Attached the complete log. It reads the correct link, but it decides NOT to download it, but don't know exactly why..., could any switch do the job? Thank you! Edit: uploaded log Edit2: can't upload log... but that's the important part I think
  2. Lol, this is what happens when you post before (well) reading, you can politely ignore it Still looking for something that could help.
  3. I've found that with an example update (WindowsXP-KB977914-x86-ENU.exe) the main difference between both download links are: English: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/confirmation.aspx?familyId=a9beb2bd-e5f6-43f9-bbcc-a2afee5e5ceb&displayLang=en Spanish: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/es-es/confirmation.aspx?familyId=a9beb2bd-e5f6-43f9-bbcc-a2afee5e5ceb&displayLang=es But not the same when the direct download link is generated: English: http://download.microsoft.com/download/0/F/B/0FBD2439-11BE-4CA6-A1DC-29766DFF4FC8/WindowsXP-KB977914-x86-ENU.exe Spanish: http://download.microsoft.com/download/A/F/0/AF023ADE-582D-409B-BEEF-7CAB8CB87EF3/WindowsXP-KB977914-x86-ESN.exe Seems that the main difference is the language codes used by microsoft (not the same for the files than for the download links). Don't know if you already noticed it, hope that this helps, love your idea
