SynStar: Is there any solution to the GOG downloader not working. at all? I never get prompt to login, I can never actually access the window (despite the fact there is a tray icon). it just refuses to work. and it's been this for almost an entire year now.
I bought Lord of realms a couple of days ago. When I click on the link, it goes to the bookshelve again. Did you ever get any games to download?I tried with latest versions of FireFox and IE, neither worked. I used BitDefender anti-virus and Spybot malware, Windows XP Service pack III. Did anyone ever contact you from support. or just the auto answerer?

Jonesybunny: As of the latest stable Windows GOG Downloader release 3.6.0.0, the issue of the magnifying glass button going to My Documents instead of to the download folder still has not been fixed.

Search reveals last mention of this being worked on was on January 07, 2013.

Has there been any updates regarding this issue?

JudasIscariot: I would recommend just repointing the Downloader to your preferred folder. I had this issue pop up once and once I repointed the Downloader to my preferred folder this never happened again :)
Repointimg has not worked for me, even after multiple times of deleting and reinstalling the file. I am curious if this is a GOG issue or a settings issue on our pcs?
I just purchased like 8 games from you, installed the downloader, logged in, and i have nothing but a grey screen after i log in (successfully). It does not show any of my purchased games, no activity for downloading, nothing. All buttons other then settings greyed out.

Please tell me how to fix this asap so i can download my purchases.

The GOG Downloader is not the Steam client, you can't access your library through it (yet, if rumors are to be trusted). In order to download your games, go to My Account -> My Games and click on the cover of the game you wish to download. If you wish to use the GOG Download Manager, you'll have to enable it in the game page on your library. You can still download the games without using it, if you prefer.

Open your games one by one, click on the installer link in order to download them and close the browser, as they will all be added to the downloader and will download in succession.
