Download Integration Problem with Opera
Wednesday, February 11, 2009 2:03:52 PM
one is the use of plugin support for IDM and other is the use of Oget integration .
Q. I cannot integrate IDM into my Opera browser. Does Internet Download Manager take over downloads from this browser?
1. Internet Download Manager fully supports Opera browser. Please note that for Opera browser it's best to enable "Use advanced browser integration" option.
2. If you cannot use advanced browser integration, and if you have Opera checkbox checked for IDM basic integration in IDM "Options->General", and if IDM still cannot take over downloads from Opera, please check the following
2.1. Please check that NP_IDM1.dll, NP_IDM2.dll, NP_IDM3.dll (and possibly several similar) IDM Opera integration modules exist in "Program\Plugins\" folder in Opera root folder.
2.2. If the files above don't exist, please check NP_IDM.dll in IDM root folder ("c:\program files\internet download manager" by default). This is the pattern file that is used by IDM to generate NP_IDM*.dll integration modules for Opera. If this file does not exist, please download it from http://www.internetdownloadmanager.com/data/v5/NP_IDM.dll and place it to IDM root folder. Then uncheck and check "Integrate IDM into browsers" box for Opera on IDM "Options->General" tab and refer to item 2.1 to check the files again.
2.3. If the files from item 2.1 don't exist anyway, please check whether IDM has generated them. The files should be generated in local user profile stored in "C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\IDM\" ("C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\IDM" for Vista OS). In order to see "Application Data" folder you need to be able to see hidden folders. To enable it, use "Tools->Folder Options" windows explorer menu item, select "View" tab and check "Show hidden files and folders" option.
2.4. Also note that for some old versions of Opera, you need to configure Opera manually for each file type. Use "Tools->Preferences..." Opera menu item, then select "Advanced" tab, and select "Downloads". For each file extension that you want to download with IDM press "Edit..." button and on next dialog select "Use plug-in" and then select "IDMan Click Catcher Plug-in" from the combo box. (For older versions of Opera browser, you may need to select preferences in "Opera->File->Preferences->Multimedia->Find_plug-ins...")
other is the usage of
