Can't download the file
« le: 04 février 2010, 00:52:20 am »
Okies, so I got my mail which contains a link to the file to download...

"The game is available for download at the following link:

path removed....

The key file attached to this email is your personal key and should not be shared.  Place the key file in the main HistWar folder."


Clicking on the link brings up a "Windows cannot find" followed by the path (which starts with ftp://hwlesgrognards and appears to contain what looks like a username and password string) Check the spelling and try again..

Tried removing the caps etc but no dice... I can connect to ftp://histwargames.com which shows me the demo file and can even log on anonymously and download it... but the link I have in the mail simply doesn't work...

Anyone got any clues here? Am I missing something? I certainly don't seem to have an .rtf attachment file that is talked about elsewhere, I do however have an inline attachment with a string of numbers which I take to be the key....

Pak43, sounds like you got a different email than the rest of us.

The link that worked for me starts off http://www.histwargames.com and was followed by a folder and the name of the file.  This started downloading automatically when pasted into FireFox.

Note that the user and password are lower case.

If you got an attachment named xxxxKey.hw, you're ahead of most.  Copy this file into the HistWar main folder when you get the game installed.

Let me know if you need more help.

I just saw what may be a copy of the new email.  The link there starts off

ftp://hwlesgrognards...
See if you can get it to work by removing the http:// from the beginning.  Although it's likely your link doesn't have http:... the forum keeps adding that to my post.

Like Hook said, did you try to remove http:// before the ftp:// ?

Other solution : copy / paste the entire URL from ftp:// ... to .exe into your browser

ftp:// .... .exe
In any case, make sure the URL starts with ftp:// and ends with a .exe when you paste it into your browser

So the url does start with ftp, not http. Having double checked I have typed only ftp: in this post and previewed it I can see the forum software sticks http:// in front of it automatically... so the below will probably have http:// in front of it

ftp://hwlesgrognards... etc

and this probably won't..

xxx_ftp://hwlesgrognards_xxx

I've copied and pasted it from the email into the browser and no dice, I've opened Explorer and used it as an ftp client and no dice...

The link ends with an .exe file "HistWar-Release01-install.exe"

Obviously I'm reluctant to post the full path since it appears to contain a password and username (I think).

Being an ftp link it'll be case sensitive right? So I figure the link is probably correct but the case is wrong somewhere?
