Application: FlashGet
Category: Internet
Description: FlashGet (formerly JetCar) is a freeware download manager for Microsoft Windows.

Here you can find launchers for FlashGet download manager. Every mayor version has its own launcher and it probably won't work with other versions, but you can try Eye-wink. They should be fully functional, feedback is welcome.

Before you can use FlashGet in your favorite browser you must close all open browsers. When you close them start FlashGetPortable and when it is running you can use browser, if you don't do this FlashGet will not work (catch links).
When you download launcher place it in the X:\PortableApps\FlashGetPortable\ folder on your flash disk (where X is your flash disk drive letter). When you start FlashGetPortable for the first time it will ask where is your FlashGet installation so it can copy necessary files to the right place to complete installation. Also note that download folder is always set to X:\Downloads (where X is your flash disk drive letter) for now.

You can download launchers from here:
FlashGetPortable v1.7.1
FlashGetPortable v1.7.3
FlashGetPortable v1.9.6
Here are the paf installers (no app):

I also need to thank Klonk on his excellent Portable Application Template which helped me in developing this.



  • Created paf installer for the launcher.


  • Launchers now remember user set default download folder.
  • Added launcher for FlashGet 1.7.3, needs testing.


  • Initial release.

yeah, it's a little annoying when a program is presented with no explaination.

so far I have found this:

it's a download manager that seems to be useable with most browsers.

Proprietary software ..

FlashGet is not FOSS and therefore doesn't belong on .
While it is a good program there is a FOSS alternative :
Free Download Manager :
It's not perfect and I have to admit that I use NetTransport myself ..

NOT FlashGet itself Smiling

I updated description. Does someone have any problems with the launcher?

three different launchers to the program? Is is like a development fork w/ KeePass?

It is fine but...

I think you need to change the download directory from X:\Download to X:\Documents\Download to make it style... Eye-wink

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report Laughing out loud

I agree! You could take a

I agree! You could take a look at keepass, I think it has some of that style code (in case you're wondering)

Default download dir is changed to X:\Documents\Downloads but you can now set it where you wish, and launcher will remember.
