 Win 10 bug

 
 by tresp on: Apr 14 2016
 
Score 50%

It has the strangest bug - on win10, resolution 1366x768, it is too long for the screen. You can't see or click the lower fields in the dialog, and the OK button that is assumedly there. The window is not resizeable and cannot be dragged up from the side margin.

 Program No Longer Working

Hathi Download Helper had always worked fine for me until the last few days.

Now every time I try using the program, I can't even get through the first step ("Get Book Information"). I keep getting the error message "http request failed". Is anyone else having the same problem?
