i had a problem too. The setup finished but installed itself on firefox and not on chrome. If I use the online video tab of the program and run the video, then I can download but it takes very long, much longer than the video takes to run.
Mihalcea Andrei12
To be honest with you, i haven\'t used this ability of downloading images since you have the \"save image as \" function on the comfort of your right click. I would care to use this only for right click (copy) protected files.
