I have been busy! If you've had problems with .NET Mass Downloader working behind a proxy server, version 1.2 adds the –proxy command line switch if you need to specify server, username, password, and domain.
The –proxy switch uses the following form: server|username|password|domainname.
Also, .NET Mass Downloader works just fine with the Visual Studio Express versions. See my article on CodeProject on how to get the .NET Reference Source with Visual Studio Express.
Please let us know if you are still having proxy problems, or any other problems with .NET Mass Downloader.
