On 3.1 beta, The Witcher seems to want to redownload the entire game, despite having the EXE/BINs in the "the_witcher" folder. Shouldn't it just redownload the portion of the installer that got updated?

not if it's not an incremental update which might be hard to achieve since everything is packed into the installer.
Do the installers disappear for everyone if the Downloader is restarted? In which case, if the app needs to update a game like The Witcher it will identify wherever it was originally downloaded and bring it up in the main window for an update?
Works flawlessly, Mr Zen. Good work. Definitely a massive improvement over its Adobe AIR origins.

The Downloader does not remove any downloaded installers. When the app is restarted and you've had any uncompleted download it will resume. All completed downloads are just removed from the downloader queue upon closing the app.

Oh, sorry, that's what I meant :) I had one instance (the first one) where an installer did not show up in my download folder even though it had finished downloading without problems. Everything seems to be working fine now...

So is there any chance the queue can stay in place, like the old version? An option in Settings to keep/clear queue after downloading/closing program would be nice.

I'm gathering all the feedback from you guys and will be discussing your ideas with the rest of the dev team. We'll see what can be done :)

Why is this no longer a sticky? :(

Bump.
the update fails, says something about 64-bit incompatibility. i'm on win7
I received a "GOG.com downloader has stopped working." message in Windows 7 x64. I tried to debug, but nothing happened. I think it had to do with my internet connection dropping out while downloading. I notice a bunch of "Request error response" lines at the end of the logger file. Sorry I can't provide more information.

EDIT:
OK, got it to happen right when opening the downloader and was able to get a stack trace. I'm not sure this is the same error that happened a little bit ago.

System.NullReferenceException was unhandled

EDIT 2:
Seems fine with 3.0.25, we'll see if it finishes.

GOG downloader now forced my full screen application; like video games to minimize occasionally if i didn't exit the downloader.
Not sure if related but I am using GoG Downloader 3.0.25 (Stable) and I keep getting a dialog box with following:

It's a pity that you've used WPF in the new gog-downloader. Using .NET was great opportunity to make it multiplatform. Now it doesn't work even in wine and old one did work.
When does the window show up? Can you PM me the contents of the logger file?

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\GOG.com\logger.log

If the folder does not exists, please create it and run the app again.
