           Summary: download hangs and wpkg is halted
           Product: WPKG
           Version: 1.1.2
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wpkg.js
        AssignedTo: mangoo at wpkg.org

When the URL is correct, it works 95% of the time, but sometimes, the download
just seem to hang, and the installation halts. The file never appears in the
%TEMP%\wpkg (which I have chosen to save the file in).
When this happens, I have to kill cscript and restart the wpkg service, and
then it works fine.
The webserver hosting the files works fine during these events and so does the

Im currently running wpkg from local machine during these tests, and wpkg is
using the network share \\\wpkg$

Can I also do a feature request? The download command could use a md5sum and/or
file size check to see if the file was downloaded properly. :)
