    DVDFab Installer

    I noticed that with DVDFab version 11.0.0.4, the only way to get it is through the installer (or is there another way?). Is this how future versions will also install or will there still be an option to download the actual file where the user can install it, or is this the way it will be in the future? I am assuming the actual file is downloaded to a temp location which is then deleted after installation because I could not find where it download to. BTW, when I ran the installer the first two times (x64 version) it popped up with a message in red letters that it failed. The third time I tried, it installed ok. I hadn't changed anything and each attempt was made right after the other. Perhaps it was a server problem on the other end?

    Personally, I like the old method of being able to download and SAVE the actual file. This had allowed me to go back to a prior version in the event there is some bug introduced in the current version, as happens from time to time, and for other troubleshooting options. With direct install only, there doesn't seem to be a way to do this in the future, since it only installs the most current version. So say for example that there is some bug in future version 11.0.0.5, and I want to revert back to 11.0.0.4, I presume I would no longer able to do this, or am I missing something? If this is the only option for now, PLEASE bring back the option for downloading and saving the actual file as it was in the past.

    Thank you!

    Also, thank you for changing the blurred main screen while focus was given to the scanning box (my eyes thank you too, lol), and thank you for bringing back the 'New Hope' skin! Now if you could just 'tone down' the opening splash screen as, it is a bit "loud" (or give the user the option to not even have it show, as some programs do; IMHO, the older one was much better!). Again, Thank you.

    The 1050 version of the downloader will place the downloaded cache file in my download folder, making it easy to back up the installation package.
    Using the downloader will result in faster download speeds, and we test the data, which is about 2 times faster than amazon cloud.

    Yes, thanks. I wouldn't have thought about scrolling down, either.

    Please, DVDFab, keep the offline installers available. I have a slow internet connection and would rather be able to download the entire package and install it at my leisure than wait and wait and wait while an online installer does its downloading.

    The online installation package has a very large upgrade speed compared to the offilne installation package and is available to keep you up to date with the latest version. The online installation package also has a download and install copy to the local, the default he is in the tmp directory, if you like you can save it.

    Online installation package download cache path: C:\Users\$YoutUser$\AppData\Local\Temp\{D27FAB72-DCA2-5JIA-B8CB-D165ZHUOA25}\
    $YoutUser$ = Username of your computer

    I don't think I would have ever thought to scroll down. Thanks.

    Hello Wilson,

    I use G Data Total Security. I can solve the Problem when i deaktivate the Download Protection. But this is a very bad solution.

    Hi,

    Please post the install.log file if the online installer does not work for you. And we can also download the offline installer from DVDFab Download Center , it will be availabled soon.

    C:\Users\XXXX\Documents\DVDFab11\Log

    Please offer the offline Installer instead of the online installer

    The Antivirus software donīt let me download the Files with the online installer.
    @Paeppelchen, which antibirus software is used on your computer?

    Thanks!

    Wilson

    +1 for offline installers. Online installers are a PITA. Dump them
    Particularly when a program is installed on more than one PC, and/or on PCs not connected to the Internet. Both cases here.
    +1 for the splash screen (I'd prefer to turn it off). Also, the animated icons on the main screen are too loud too.

    Put me down as another one in favour of an offline installer for all the reasons already stated above.
    Thanks

    I guess you are saying when you update from within the app, you still have the option (again within the app) to download and save the offline installer, correct? If that's the case, and they keep it that way, then I guess that would work too. Thanks.

    This may not always work going forward.

    Please also offer the offline installer, so we can save the FabExe .
    It should be possibility for us, to return to older versions if new ones have a bug
    allegedly anti-virus programs also make problems
