    Default [SOLVED] IGN Download Manager 2.3 --> d/l location to the forcefield folder

    Probably just missing a simple checkbox somewhere but I seem to be having trouble using Direct2Drive (IGN) with ZA 9.3.014 (ten user licence) on Win 7 x64. Forcefield works perfectly for all my downloads but when I purchase a game from Direct2Drive, it uses its own Download Manager (V2.3). Again no problem but when it finishes the file does not appear in Windows Explorer. I am only guessing that Forcefield has withheld the file somewhere. Unfortunately I can't fine where not how to allow the download manager to finish its file downloads. Not too fussed if Forcefield has to check after the download completed. Currently using a VM running XPSP3 not running ZA to do this and then copy across but would prefer to run native. Any suggestions would be great. Thank you.

    Hi!

    forcefield virtualization is isolating the browser from the rest of the system, under this priciple it will not allow background automatic saving of files to other folders than the "forcefield" one under the "my document" folder.

    If the download tool does not give the option to select a download location (to point to the above mentioned folder) then you will need to turn off virtualization (and reboot) or the entire forcefield module to be able to download the game.

    P.S. You are running an outdated version of ZA. You need to upgrade to latest 9.3.037.000.

    Sorry,
