Free Download Manager Portable - app run but I can't download

https://portableapps.com/apps/internet/free-download-manager-portable

Please check this version (3.9.7.1641) if it letting you to download.
I think the previous versions worked. But this version looks like it's only an ad.

Tested on Win7 32-bit

The King is Dead...

Looks like it's totally obsolete and overtaken by current technologies.

I've tried downloading some files from: SourceForge, LibreOffice extensions, SumatraPDF's website.. All the time it shows an 'Unknown network error'. But was able to download a movie's subtitle and a .html's webpage.

Tested on: Win 7 x64 → The two latest versions

PS. I've used it like ~15~ years ago, It was working!

Dismiss

You dismiss the ad (no thanks, or remind me later) and then the app starts. It's likely in your system tray. You can turn off update checks within Options.

@John T. Haller

What I meant to say:
Please check the functionality/efficiency of the software. It no longer works properly.
The continued presence of the software here on the site is just an advertisement for the newer version.

Download Click Interceptor?

Is it the download click interceptor you're talking about? I added a URL directly to FDM to download and it downloaded the file without issue.

Sorry but..

I would be glad to try downloading that file.

In my side: SumatraPDF files, an AIMP skin, a LO extension and FDM (portable) from Sourceforge.
Added manually of intercepted by FDM, nothing seems to work for me!

Win 7 x64. No Antivirus or firewall. With & Without VPN (USA & Japan).

Without Interceptor

Without the interceptor. Not sure what you meant by "Added manually of intercepted by FDM"

I went to: https://www.sumatrapdfreader.org/download-free-pdf-viewer

Right-clicked and copied the download

Right-clicked in FDM and selected add a new download. URL was pre-filled. Clicked OK. Worked without issue.

Still Nothing!

Still Nothing!
Manually → using FDM's Drop Box.
Interception → When FDM intercepts the copied link from clipboard.

PS. This one works. Don't worry, issues aren't from your side!
