NewsLeecher v5.0 Beta 16 (RC1)
Windows 8 Pro
Clean Install after Windows Installation

After installing NewsLeecher v5.0 Beta 16 today i have found it does not save any of my settings on exit. All Server details and Interface Settings are reset on re-starting program. Upgraded from Version 4.0 Final as it didnt work with Windows 8.
Have unistalled and re-installed but same problem, cannot find a solution on forums.

Thanks for time Wink

I too tried to use the beta 15 version, but although i see it running in the Task Manager it does not show on desktop. Have tried multiple re-installs and still not working for me Sad . Running on Windows 7 x64 i had no problems running version 4.0 final.
Im guessing its just me as i cant believe im the only one who upgraded to Windows 8 Surprised , as i cant see anyone else with this problem. Dont really want to find an alternative program to use as i just renewed Newsleecher Confused
Any Help or Ideas would be appreciated Very Happy

You are not alone.

Installed Windows 8 and I too suffer from the losing of servers when Newsleecher is closed.

Hopefully it will be fixed sharpish as having to make do with SABNZB+

Can you try giving this unofficial release a run and see if that solves the problem:

That seems to have solved the problem for me Thanks Spiril Very Happy.

Have installed, entered details, exited newsleecher, started newsleecher and setting are still there Smile

Will restart PC and try to download something and see how it goes, will report back asap.

Thanks for the fix and quick reply Cool

** Update ** After Downloading a few items and opening and closing the program a few times i now have a working Newsleecher i have come to love over the years Very Happy

also solved the problem for me (tried to add servers, closed newsleecher with stuffs stil in the queue, etc...).

thanks Spiril Wink

btw, there's another bug which is there for some releases now : window "bug has occured" appears if I close NewsLeecher with some stuff still to download (being on the "Queue" tab, doesn't seems to affect other tabs) and if there are some groups to cleanup. I know, I didn't reported before, but this is not really annoying as I just have to move the bug window and click OK to confirm cleanup of groups. after the cleanup, NewsLeecher closes fine.

Beta 6 does not remember added destination match entry.
Also does not continue verifying and extracting with more then one files.
It continues only after closing NL and restart.
I use Windows 8 also.

Hi,

I'm facing the same problem with beta 16.

Does somebody still have the fix ? (http://www.newsleecher.com/nluft1.exe) because the link is dead.

Thanks

I believe the fix was rolled into a later beta. Please download beta 18 from the main download page.
