Using 2 different windows 8 PCs, 6.5 was not downloaded, 1 used an Ethernet connection the other a wifi connection. On a windows 7 laptop using the same wifi stick as the 2nd PC, it downloaded 6.5 successfully.

So, this issue is related somehow to windows 8. How I do not know! I don't think networking was altered too much, possibly one of the libraries has a compatibility issue.

Tested using compatibility mode and administrator mode to no avail.

Wait. You don't even see MangaRack attempting to download 006.5?! Or it does download it, but never appears on the file system?

No attempt is even made...

Mangarack doesn't make an attempt at all to download it, it grabs everything else without any issues at all.
If I didn't go and check I wouldn't have noticed it.

If it was attempting to download it that would be a different story, but it downloads 5 then 6 then 7.

I sent the application over (Beta 8) to two friends both running Windows 8 64-Bit and had them run the application. In both cases, everything downloaded as they were on my machine, thus including #6.5. I haven't had time to install a VM with Windows 8 yet, but I'll get on that as well to see the results first-hand. It appears, judging by the feedback of these other two people, that this is an issue that seems more likely caused by some abnormality on your machine. Either way, I might experience the issue myself once I run Windows 8 but if I don't, I really have no clue what to do about this.

That is strange...

I have windows 8 on 2 PCs, one was a completely clean install as in I had just finished wiping and putting everything on and it still gave me the same issue.

I have a windows 7 laptop and on there, no issues at all.

My network is vastly slower however.

Tomorrow I can wipe PC and then see, just have to complete some work, but I am wondering if I only have mangarack on if that will make a difference.

I had the opposite experience.

All the PCs in this house with windows 8 (2 aren't used by me) miss that chapter every time.
All the PCs in this house with windows 7 (1 isn't used by me) sees that chapter without fail.

This reaction is delayed; I have now used Windows 8 Pro (64 bit) and have had no issues. Upon starting the application, Windows 8 did inform me I had to install .NET framework 3.0. After accepting it I ran the Beta 8 build of the application and downloaded chapters of Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi, including the infamous #006.5 chapter. I cannot reproduce the issue at all. :(

I'm doing a wipe on the other PC now. Will test without updates, then with updates.

I thought I had scared you off for a bit there :P

On that note: Sorry for being such a hassle.

I should set up a VM of Windows 7 and see if that makes a difference!

100% clean install, same issue on windows 8 x64 pro.

EDIT: using a different network, no change. In 2 hours I will have a winodws 7 x64 iso to put in Hyper V to test.

Perhaps it is a language issue?
Does Batoto localize content for you (based on IP)? (Save the Batoto page, attach it here!)
Does Windows 8 use a non-English language?
I use English Windows 8 Pro 64 bit/live in the Netherlands (no Batoto localization).
