I had Orbit Downloader installed on my system for a long time and had no problem with it till recently that all of a sudden it started crashing. That is whenever I click on its icon to run, the Windows Error Reporting window appears reading "Orbit Downloader has encountered a problem and needs to close"
I tried installing / reinstalling it without any success. I have even tried each and every new version of Orbit Downloader coming out (latest one being 2.7.9) to no avail
The interesting fact is that Grabber runs OK and has no problem but the main program cannot start any more The only version of the program which I can run at the moment is the pretty old 188.8.131.52 !!
Please help me overcome this sad problem as I do not wish to uninstall Orbit Downloader
I run on:
Windows XP Service Pack 2
Internet Explorer 7 (7.0.5730.13)
Avant Browser version 11.7 build 16
Thanks in advance.

Sorry to bring this old topic up but I finally came to know the reason why my Orbit Downloader had stopped functioning and thought it's good to share it with you in a case you faced the same problem as I did too.
It was all because of the Microsoft .NET framework version. I had a version 2 .NET framework installed on my Windows. Today I decided to upgrade it to version 3. I ran a "dotnet version checker" to see what exact version I have and was shocked to see it was no longer version 2 but the pretty old version 1.1!!
I really have no idea how it's changed back to an older version but I upgraded it (again) to MS .NET Framework version 2 (SP1), reinstalled Orbit Downloader, ran it and voila! It started working like charm!!!
It really feels good to see Orbit interface once more after such a looooong time. If I only had checked that dot NET Framework version earlier....
Hello, I have been using orbit from many years now I never had any problem with it, but recently whenever I try to open the orbit downloader it just crashes giving the error "Orbit Downloader has stopped working"

This is the entire error message I get, I HAVE TRIED REINSTALLING ORBIT RESTARTING, CLEAN BOOTING, CLEANING FROM THE REGISTRY AND REINSTALLING BUT NOTHING WORKED AND I HAVE ALSO CHECKED THE .NET FRAMEWORK VERSION I HAVE 4.0 IN MY WINDOWS 7.
I really love this application and hate to think I have to stop using it, any solutions provided will be of great help. Thanks:)
