Android Newsgroup Downloader has been tested under Microsoft Windows Vista and has found to work correctly. There are a few know issues, which will be reported on this page. If you experience any issue related to running Android under Windows Vista, then please report them to smbaker@sb-software.

Vista-Related Issues:

  • Download Directory. Because of the Windows Vista 'virtualstore' feature, downloaded files are stored in the folder:

    c:\users\<username>\appdata\local\virtualstore\program files\androidnews\download

    as opposed to c:\ program files\androidnews\download

Known Bugs:

  • The 'Explore Download Path' command is not yet working, because Vista is storing files in the virtualstore rather than the normal download directory. Thus when explorer is launched, it is unable to find the download directory.
