Every time I select a list item, the scroll bar slides to the right. This happens in the supersearch & queue. It looks like it is putting th focus on a coulmn that is not visible at the moment.

Don't use the "Open" button or the Enter key to leech. Use the "Leech" button.

If that doesn't solve the problem, provide more info on how you add articles to the transfer queue.

Thanks a bunch for the beta 7...

one quick thing:

in the Advanced Nerdy Tweaks...

the "gui_show_popup_hints": even if I set the value to false, NL still shows the popups...

otherwise, great f'n program... I've not had any of the problems in the other beta versions; no lag, no "application error", just the virus alerts, but that has been sorted... keep up the good work...

I have the same issue. Also missing the poster/age info in the top bar. Subject is the only thing showing.

Great job on the new release!,

The Newsleecher log to disk feature is broken I believe (or I can't file the nl_log.txt file).
Also, I can't find the extra info file (the nl.xml file), I use this file to keep track of the current status of my other (leech)machine. :)

Tnx in advance

Thanks for the good work,

but I'm still missing these features.

1. Supersearch Service --> More: It is not possible to change Min.Days:

2. News:::Log: All Log entries are without date.

3. Queue: I can't find "files and articles marked for downloading - xxxxx articles in queue - xxxxxx GB - time left ~ xxxxxx.

4. The Queue Manager under Queue --> Options is still missing.

5. Usenet --> Articles: Many missing entries. (No Smart Select, Remove from Transfer Queue, Properties ...).

6. Sometimes the flash 'sorting articles' stays on screen.

7. Please add the possibility to close the NL news stand window.

This feature is working fine for me. These files are saved in the configuration files data directory. You are probably looking in the newsleecher.exe application directory.

Our software does not contain a virus. It is a false positive by your antivirus software. You will need to either add an exception for our installer to your antivirus program or wait for them to release an updated definition file that fixes this false positive.

According to the following virus scan, eSET/NOD32 isn't detecting a problem with the 4247 definition DAT file.


FYI, here are the scan results for 4.0b7
installer (Result: 0/41)
installed application (Result: 1/41) McAfee-GW-Edition 6.8.5 2009.07.15 Heuristic.LooksLike.Win32.Suspicious.H

When I use the supersearch I can find the items, but trying to leech them I get a message I am in trial version and start my browser to buy a license :o

Since you have changed the address on the license, you need to re-register the NewsLeecher application.

Please use the Help>License Key Tools menu to remove any currently installed key and restart the application. It should ask you for the email address and password for your Member Area account.

question

Post by henv » Wed Jul 15, 2009 9:21 pm

I use a usenetprogram where everything is spotted with a addon it was possible to put the info like filenames directly from the program to supersearch. Since version 4 it is not reliable. The builder from the addon asked if it still could possible for newsleecher version 4 to use the supersearch function with a windows api call
