Szulak: Unfortunately, the mac installers are stored in one file, not in chunks like windows installers. Because of them, Downloader in not able to verify how much of mac installer file has been downloaded.
So the problem is the fact that the range it downloads is
bytes range(0 - 43894554)
which is ~ 40MB instead of the 4.1GB it should?

Thank you, I checked it and it's a bug. This bug has been fixed, we will release new version of GOG Downloader soon.
after my client updated this morning, it resets its options on every startup. i use a custom download folder on another drive, so this really upsets me

I am checking it right now, and it seems to be an issue. I will fix it asap.

EDIT:
It looks like only the download path is not saved correctly.


EDIT2:
This issue has been fixed.

Have you got any antivirus program installed? I suggest yoy to check, if GOG Downloader isn't blocked by AV. Moreover, make sure your .NET framework (3.5) is installed correctly, since Win 8 doesn't have it installed by default.
Seems to install fine just won't connect. norton 360 installed last week, and all .ne software and updates.

it magically appeared. forgot about norton firewall. thanks

OS Version: Microsoft Windows NT 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 (Windows 7)
Language: English (United States)

The downloader settings (start game installer after download is complete, nb of connections, path to downloads) are reset to default after the update from version 3.2.22 to version 3.3.5.0 (stable), and you can't close the update dialog without clicking to update.

Also, if you change the path to downloads while there are downloads pending it doesn't check if the files are in the new path and so it downloads them again and overwrites the files already there with new identical copies. If you try to cancel the downloads it erases the existing files so you still need to download them again.

Once the settings are set again and no old downloads are pending it works fine, the settings remain after restarting the downloader several times.
1. Downloader version : 3.3.4.0 (stable)
2. OS version : Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1( build 7601 )
3. OS language : US English
4. Downloader log contents if possible: http://pastebin.com/TFyk5MnF
5. GOG Downloader starts up with windows as a normal window. Upon closing the window it minimizes win3.1 style as a small window above the start button instead of the systray. (See screenshot http://tinypic.com/r/1zqc18n/6) Once I restore it and click the close button again to minimize it, the problem dissapears, it minimizes to systray normally.
This happens regardless if I click close before or after the Downloader goes online. The first minimization after a system start will show the bug.

I tried to reproduce it myself, but I couldn't. Are you using any additional programs to 'support' windows minimization, for example PowerMenu or something like it?
