I use Orbit Downloader now also. I don't use the Orbit Firefox plugin but use the Flashgot extension instead. I have also disabled monitoring in Orbit itself, so I manually sent video's and files to Orbit.

What I do like about Orbit is that it download streaming video's better than Flashget and NetTransport. For example I had some streaming files that Flashget/NetTransport only downloaded 87 MB, while using Orbit it became 92MB and the files played better in Windows Media Player as well :thumbup

See post below for improved script!

Seems like a lot of work instead of editing the Inno script, I suppose it saves time checking for differences with new version. I am in the middle of creating a new script at the mo. You probably know this with creating your Nero Inno but if you are having to delete the start menu folder after, the noicons switch isn't working it has to be allowed by the script writer. You can also just specify certain tasks and it would save you having to delete the Desktop and Quick launch icons.

I to cannot get the Firefox option to be enabled but all it does is copy a text file to your FF profile dir which points to the Orbit dir. You can also edit the conf.dat to add FF click monitoring by adding bSupportFireFox=1 to the Monitoring section.

I have updated the Orbit installer script for use at T12.

By setting the default location to the My documents folder\Downloads each user will have its own download folder.
