Our target is to export a bunch of Wiki pages from our company's Wiki including
some linked pages and some external files on our servers.
We are using WinHTTrack Website Copier 3.42 and facing several problems.

1. Not all images are displayed in the Internet Explorer although the Browser
ID is set to 'Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Win32)'. The images are
located in exactly the same path. E.g. one image named picture008.jpg gets is
displayed but picture009.jpg of the same directory doesn't. (But in Firefox it

2. HTTrack does not seem to always check whether a linked (e.g. html) page has
already been successfully exported and does not adjust another link to the
same destination.

3. Even though the URLs have been specified with username and password (in the
form <>) some files are
not exported and produce the error message: Error: "Authorization Required"
(401) at link ....

All server addresses have been specified as Export URLs including username and
password if necessary.
The filtering is done as follows:

First we exclude the main Wiki path and server top levels in order not to have
a complete Wiki being exported since on every page there are links to the Main
Page, the Categories etc., Mediawiki etc.


Next we include all file types we want:
+*.css +*.js +*.doc +*.xls +*.ppt
+*.gif +*.jpg +*.png +*.tif +*.bmp
+*.zip +*.tar +*.tgz +*.gz +*.rar +*.z +*.exe

And at last we include the specific paths again

I hope someone can tell me what I have set wrongly in this case.
