mistake libUrlDownloadToFile on windows 7 and 8

Post by jmburnod » Wed Feb 25, 2015 4:34 pm

Hi All,
One tester says me libUrlDownloadToFile fails on windows 7 and 8. :(
Fortunately it works fine on OS X and IOS :D
Is there someone who met this problem ?
Thanks
Jean-Marc

This works on Win 7 for me

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
   set the defaultFolder to specialFolderPath("desktop")
   libURLDownloadToFile "http://www.example.com/index.html", "test.txt"
   put the result
end mouseUp
or are you using ftp?

Hi Simon,
Thanks for test.
It seems the mistake is elsewhere in my scripts.
I dont understand why it works on OS X and IOS but not on windows
are you using ftp?
No
Best regards
Jean-Marc

It may be a permissions problem. Are you downloading the file to a writable location?

Also, you can check the libURLStatus to see if there's an error. LibURLErrorData may also work though the dictionary says it is for the load command.

Thanks Jaque,
That could explain why I was able to do this installation with a PC windows 7.
Sorry for my ignorance but is it possible that specialfolderpath("documents") is not writable on windows ?

Documents should always be writable.

I haven't a PC, that is some feed-backs from users of EcrireEnPictos
I use libURLStatus to send a "listZipContents" and "extractArchive" messages
This installation copy a folder 322 Mo in "documents" folder
