A new version of the Electronic Software Delivery (ESD) Download Manager is scheduled to release on Monday, July 20, 2020.
The Download Manager 1.6 will support the use of a proxy server for downloads in Windows environment. In this version, Download Manager can process proxy auto-config (PAC) and system proxy settings by automatically reading the settings and starts downloads without the need to configure the proxy settings manually during installation.
This does not involve WPAD-like auto discovery of proxy server. Download Manger will process the .PAC script URL provided as part of the system/browser proxy settings.
The user must have permissions to read the registry and proxy config related files in order to install Download Manager 1.6.
If you have any questions related to the new functionality, please reach out to your Revenera contact or open a ticket with our Revenera Technical Support team.
