tryingnewstyle: Im having some problems with the downloader, when i try to download it from gog, it stops and gives and error. The download doesnt finish.
Are you having problems with downloading the app from our website? The connection drops in the middle?
Sor_Eddie: My computer completely freaks out when I use the GOG Downloader to get any big files (over 1 GB). The harddrive read speed reaches 100% and stays that way for quite a while until the file is done. It seems to be related to Avast scanning the file as it downloads, I think. I'm using Windows 8.1 btw
Yes, some antivirus software seems to interfere with our Downloader. Try adding it to a white list or disable antivirus while using it. Sorry for the inconvenience.
ancalimon: Today I added some downloads by clicking on the links on my library. Downloader icon next to clock appears, it starts to download but its window can not be opened. I tried rebooting, reinstalling the gog downloader but its window does not open but it downloads the games since they appear inside the folders.
The window does not pop up when you double click the icon?

This might be an issue on our CDN side. Would you mind to check if the download speed will continue the same in some time ?
hvlckvtnr: I've used the GOG Downloader for quite some time, but about a week or so (hard to tell, only recently wanted to download) it stopped working. In sys tray, the icon is a dark down arrow, and the right-click options are greyed-out Resume and Pause, and only one that works is Exit. Double-clicking on it does nothing. If I kill it and try to download something from, it launches again, but in same dark state. I've reinstalled it, and restarted machine, but still nothing. Help?
Please make sure nothing is blocking the Downloader from reaching our API. Probably antivirus or firewall is preventing our app from connecting to the Internet.
Jonesybunny: As of the latest stable Windows GOG Downloader release, 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?
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 :)
BriteLeaf: I can't download any of my games because I get an error saying gogdownloader isn't associated with any programs. How can I fix this?
Try uninstalling and re-installing it :)
HypersomniacLive: Give me a moment to make some screenshots!

EDIT: Do you use the shelf or the list view for your games?
lynthorpe: Usually use shelf. Just tried in list view after seeing your post but still getting chunksum errors
I noticed you're getting the "can't find the next BIN" error. Can you tell me if you have these files in one directory?
