[Solved] Free Download Manager - No longer detected (new Vendor)
Free Download Manager is no longer detected because the vendor changed:
File name and path: C:\Program Files\Softdeluxe\Free Download Manager\fdm.exe Product Name: Free Download Manager Internal Name: Original Filename: fdm.exe File Description: Free Download Manager Company: Softdeluxe Legal Copyright: (c) 2003 - 2020 Legal Trademarks: Comments: File Version String: 126.96.36.19916 File Version: 188.8.131.5216 Product Version String: 184.108.40.20616 Product Version: 220.127.116.1116
@OLLI_S Happy to hear you knew I would ask.
I see no reason to change it, when the website still publishes other information.
I knew that you will ask this (because I also did not find anything on the website).
So I created a support ticked 2 days ago and today I received this reply:
Hello, Thank you for your concern. The company "Softdeluxe" is the mother company of "FreeDownloadManager.ORG". The new version was decided upon to have these credentials. Thank you for bringing up your concern. Your FDM Support Center Team, Regards, Support Department
You also find an answer at the official FDM forums:
@OLLI_S Did you find any official references stating that the vendor has changed?
I can see the file, but on the website there is no references to any legal / ownership changes.
It is detected, but the vendor is still the old one:
