    You must have .net framework 1.1 installed seperately. .net frameworkd 1.1 and 2.0 virtually two different framework

    This is worth a try for those who already have the .NET framework installed, and who actually allow BITS to run.

    It probably wouldn't have been worth installing the framework just for this, though, and I only run BITS when I want to do Windows Update.

    Full-fledged download managers are better, but the idea of this alone deserves credit, it does afterall, give some real purpose to an otherwise nearly useless service.

    Excellent program for those not needing all the extra features of download managers. Just add to the list an you dont even need to leave the program running. Also the author is very good at responding to feature requests.
