Trying to download iso's and exe's from vmware.com with login details

I'm trying to use OE to download all the iso's and exe's from the download section on VMware.com

I have login details which I put in the project and also logged into it on the PC so it could use my IE cookies to authenticate as well but it runs for hours and hours going through pages but never downloads any exe or iso files and there is loads. I set it to download them from any server too.

Why doesn't it work?

Have similar issues on other login protected websites

Limited it to 1 connection as well just in case

Can you try to open the site online in the Internal Browser of Offline Explorer and logon there. Then start the download. Would that work?

Best regards,

Tried that but it doesn't display the same as it does in IE or another browser. For example I can't expand sections which allow me to get to the downloads links/buttons

I could send screenshots to show difference if that's possible somehow?

Also just realised that when I click on download links in a browser a disclaimer appears to tick a box and accept

I assume that's stopping OE from downloading as well, I guess accepting them all may add cookies to allow OE to use them and download files? Although not sure if it will if it doesn't display websites in the right way in its internal browser.

The download pages URLs are like this... for example:

https://my.vmware.com/group/vmware/details?downloadGroup=VRLI-450-VCENTER&productId=529&rPId=17301

Would OE support downloading and scanning through pages like this?

Unfortunately, the site doesn't allow to see this page without a password. Could you send me the logon information to support@metaproducts.com ?

Thank you!

Oleg.
