How do I setup .EXE--like CGI scripts--programs on my server so GetRight will NOT try to download them?
The easiest way to do that is to put some "CGI-ish" items into the URL.
I added .JPG or .GIF or .HTM etc. to the Monitor tab, but GetRight doesn't catch the click?
This only applies for Microsoft Internet Explorer. With the way GetRight catches your clicks, if GetRight did catch these browser viewable types, then every item of that type, even if they are just part of a web page being shown, would be "caught" by GetRight. So GetRight does not catch these types, even if they are added.
You can have GetRight catch any type by holding the CTRL+ALT keys down when clicking a link, or using the GetRight Browser (under the Tools menus in GetRight). The GetRight Browser lets you select many items on a web page to be downloaded.
More Click Monitoring Methods for GetRight
If you have Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher, you can use this newer Click Monitoring method. It is a bit different than other ways done by GetRight. This works very well with browsers built on Internet Explorer (like Avant) that sometimes have problems with some of the other click monitoring methods!
It effectively replaces the "Save As" window you get from Internet Explorer. It's quite good and comes up just when Internet Explorer would save a file, so it isn't based on the file types used by other methods with GetRight.
It even comes up if you Right click in the browser and pick "Save Target As..."
NeoPlanet uses the same click-monitoring settings as Internet Explorer. Switch this on from the "Monitor" page of Getright's configuration window. If it already was on, try switching it off, close the configuration window to apply the changes, then switch it back on again.
Opera 7.01 doesn't catch downloads when GetRight's Opera plug-in is installed (this might also help Opera 5.11)
Opera 7 wants to install itself into a different directory than older versions of Opera, so might need to re-istall or copy the plugins over into the new directory (which is the /plugins/ subdirectory from where the program is installed. Also - "File--preferences--Multimedia" has the "Find plugins" button, which can help setup Opera to use the plugins once they are there.
If you are still having problems with Opera catching EXE downloads, do the following
Not sure why some people are having odd problems with IE6+SP1. But there is something to help. It was originally done to fix some other things, another Click Monitoring method which seems to fix is here:
In the fix installer, on the 2nd page, you should check the box about turning off the default IE click monitoring. After installing this update, the Microsoft programs should work (might need to reboot first.)
GetRight's newer "Save As Replacement" click monitoring works very well in Maxthon to take over your downloads. But it does not support the GetRight Right-Click menu additions. To enable them in Maxthon:
Open this file in notepad or another editor (this is the default install directory for Maxthon, adjust as needed)
After the line:
Add the line:
Close and restart Maxthon, then pick the Options-->Maxthon Options menu. On the Plugin page, switch to the IE Plugin tab. Find the "Bho2gr Class" and add a check by it. Then close and restart Maxthon again.
To add support for RAR and ACE files. Go to the Monitor page of Getright's configuration window and add this to the list of files which GetRight downloads automatically:
Windows XP Service Pack 2 and GetRight
For some users, after installing Windows XP Service pack 2, IE will show a 'page not found' message every time GetRight picks up a download. To fix this:
In Internet Explorer, go to the Tools menu, then pick the Internet Options menu, then switch to the Advanced tab. Under the Browsing item, make sure the "Enable third-party browser extensions (requires restart)" item is Checked.
