5. I'm running the latest version of PicaLoader and no matter how many connections I try to configure it to use, it will only utilize two. I've had this problem both under Windows 98 and 2000.
PicaLoader uses Wininet.dll which comes with Win98 and IE. This limits the number of active connections.
See http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q183/1/10.ASP for a full explanation, and how to get around it.
6. I'm evaluating PicaLoader and every page comes back with a "cannot reach server" error. The same pages browse without problems in IE.
If you are running some personal firewall(like ZoneAlarm, BlackICE, etc.), make sure that it does not prevent PicaLoader from connecting to the Internet.
7. How do I access a password-protected site using PicaLoader?
PicaLoader supports both HTTP authentication (a dialog box that pops up when you enter a password protected Web site) and login forms on Web pages.
In the first case you can enter the user name and password into the task's option form. In the second case you should manually open the site using your Internet browser, enter
your user name and password, and enter the protected area. You will now see the URL for the protected page. While still in the protected area, set a task in PicaLoader to download
starting at the URL of the protected page. Session cookies only allow you access a protected area for the duration of your visit, therefore you must start the download within
the protected area while browsing. Make sure the PicaLoader's Option/Download/Don't use IE cookie is unchecked (default).
8. Why do I get two pictures which look same?
If two pictures are in a different format or have different compression rate, PicaLoader can't differentiate between them; it's a Mission Impossible :)
9.If I didn't remove the tasks that finished, when I click the "Start" button, all the tasks will run again, right?
Yes, but PicaLoader will only download the pictures that were not downloaded last time. It will not download the duplicate pictures.
10. I ordered PicaLoader online and still haven't received a Serial No. What should I do?
If you haven't received a Serial No with your receipt, contact us immediately via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

11. I have been trying to register PicaLoader and my Serial No doesn't work. What should I do?
