Nirsoft downloads failing

I can't get the Nirsoft apps to download. If I try I get the message

Download Failed check Internet connection and/or firewall

Please whitelist the following addresses
activate.fpnet.fr -TCP 80
download.fpnet.fr - TCP 80
www.fpnet.fr - TCP 80

This suddenly started happening a few revisions ago. I seem to recall a problem highlighted with the Nirsoft downloads but now can't find the details. Updates to actual app work fine.

Re: Nirsoft downloads failing

it looks like your firewall (or anti malware maybe ?) is preventing Fab's from reaching website to download the tools.
There's an easy workaround for that : download full Fab's AutoBackup package. Nirsoft tools are now bundled in it.
Download instructions are there : https://download.fpnet.fr/Download-Update-Guide.pdf
Extract the files (by default, they go to C:\Fab's AutoBackup 7 Pro" folder) and overwrite the ones you already have with them.

Re: Nirsoft downloads failing

Thanks I'll try that. Just a frustration that the spyware removal tool gets rid of them then it was easier to just switch it off and re-download from within the program.

Re: Nirsoft downloads failing

With this version, Nirsoft tools are inside password protected zip archives. This way, anti malware tools cannot detect it while they're in their folders.
