@nasta ,

Thanks for your message.
Does it correspond to the settings before you switch to US English settings, or after?

@nasta ,

I do not succeed in reproducing the problem,
As it occurs with September month, could you kindly download http://www.forexfactory.com/calendar.php?month=sep.2013 (File / Save as) under normal (Greek) settings and post the result as you did for August?

Maybe the problem has something to do with settings in my computer only? Anyway, thanks for trying to solve a problem that seems to occur only with my computer.

@nasta ,

Normally, with you .rar, I can see what the downloader sees on your computer (with your regional settings) and try to fix it.

But there is something strange happening.

The file within you rar shows the current week:

whereas the link that I gave you ( Forex Calendar @ Forex Factory ) should show the whole month of September :

@nasta ,

To be frank, I think that it will be difficult for me to solve this issue at distance. I am not very fluent in the way regional settings are handled by browser and Java and, for obvious reasons, I cannot reproduce your Greek environment on my computer.

(As a side note, I studied Ancient Greek when I was younger at school, and I liked it... a lot!)

Nevertheless, as a last attempt, could you try the attached Jar file in which I made a modification?

@nasta ,

What remains strange is that there is no "6:45pm" in the source of the Web page you posted.
Sorry not having been able to fix it.

Hello Nicolas11 !

Sorry for my English...
Thank you for the program Economic Events Downloader!

I use this program during the trade, as well as for testing of expert advisors on history data.
But I have a problem with using this program.

Program downloads files FutureEconomicEvents.txt and HistoricalEconomicEvents.txt.
These files are saved in the folder from which the program is running by user.
But these files can also be stored in other folders, for example:
C:\Program Files\BostonPrimeMT4\
or even in the Desktop!!! (sometimes, in Windows 2003 Server)

This happens when the program is started from MQL4 code via WinAPI.

Is it possible to correct this problem?

With best regards, tuner.
