Xtreme Download Manager on an eComStation machine with Open JDK

Installing Xtreme Download Manager
Download xdman.zip (527Kb). Create a folder (directory) "xdman". Copy the contents of the file "xdman.zip" to the subdirectory. The program is confused with the setup in this page. It wants to write to the home directory. The first error is that it can't find the ".xdm" directory. After first start you have to setup the program with the right paths. Save the setup. Shut down XDM. Go to the [drive: xdman]\xdman\.xdm directory and delete the files ".xdm"; ".xdmauth"; ".xdmconf". Don't delete the "temp" directory. Again go to the setup and fill in the right paths. It sound strange, but the error didn't show up. Check if the files ".xdm" and ".xdmconf" are rewritten. If you're not confident, change something and save, check again with the time/date stamp. The "." before the names is NOT a typo!

The xdm.cmd file
With this file the program Xtreme Download Manager starts. I have made a xdm.cmd file with the following contents;
@echo off
set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin
set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin
[drive: xdman]
cd [drive: xdman]\xdman
java -Duser.home=[drive: xdman]\xdman -jar xdm.jar 2>xdman-bugs.txt
I use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for Xtreme Download Manager with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;

  • [drive: java] = drive with Java
  • [drive: xdman] = drive with Xtreme Download Manager

should be replaced with real drive letters. Edit and save the file "xdm.cmd" from the distribution. This file is copied to the "xdman" folder (directory). Furthermore, different paths?, adjust according to your needs. Create a new program object. Specify the path and file name: "[drive: xdman]\xdman\xdm.cmd". In the tabpage Session check the boxes "OS/2 window", "Running as an icon" and "Close Window to end program". In the tabpage General you can enter the name "Xtreme Download Manager". You find enclosed in the file a suitable OS/2 icon.

Parameters / options explained
  • The specification "-Duser.home=[drive: xdman]\xdman" ensures that Xtreme Download Manager will save all necessary files in own directory instead of saving them in the home directory.
  • The addition "2>xdman-bugs.txt" ensures that errors are saved in the file "xdman-bugs.txt". The 2 in "2>" is not a typo!

In the file you can find the above command file (all driveletters are set to C:) and an OS/2 Xtreme Download Manager icon: ecs-xdman.zip.
