I am not sure what you are talking about.  I just saw the request to reply to 
the mailing list in the last message and did so in my reply before this one.  
In that reply I also included the entire output.  I apologize if I was not 
reading all of the content earlier.  My bad.  But, as you requested, I got the 
output with the “debug” argument.  It is also attached.  The first command ran 
successfully (wget http://www.pazera-software.com/ -m -P C:\temp -A zip,exe -X 
files/old/ --debug), but the second command is where the crash occurred (wget 
http://www.donationcoder.com/ -m -P C:\temp -A zip,exe –debug) attached is the

Like I told Eli, I obtained the binary I use from Chocolatey, the “apt-get” 
solution for windows (http://chocolatey.org). It is supposedly the latest 
binary that is being installed, and the “—version” argument confirms it is 
version “GNU Wget 1.19.1 built on mingw32.”  


And yet you refuse to simply share the entire output.

Also, despite repeatedly asking you to, you adamantly refuse to reply to the 
mailing list. This is the last mail I will respond to unless it is sent to the 
mailing list

Hi William,

I'm not sure what the exact issue here is. But it indeed seems like the issue 
lies somewhere in how your particular binary of Wget was built. I can't 
reproduce the issue on my Linux system, and as Eli says he can't reproduce it 
with his binaries either. Of course, he has linked to a much older version of 
Wget, but if I understand right, he even has newer builds available. 

Anyways, could you please do the following for us:

1. Provide us with the output of `wget -V` so we know what the build was like.

2. Provide us with a debug log (add --debug to your command line) of when Wget 
crashes. This is essential for us to understand what is happening

3. Please ensure that all communication happens publicly on this mailing list. 
Kindly do add (address@hidden <mailto:address@hidden> ) to all your replies.

No, I'm just saying that the version I built worked without crashing.
You may wish to try it; if it works on your system, it might mean the
problem is not with the OS, but with the wget build you have.


Thanking You,
