Well that was DAMNED strange.
I'd downloaded the edited script correctly and using Windows Explorer to
copy it to "C:\Program Files (x86)\get_iplayer". When I opened it in
"notepad" it showed the correct, edited, version of the script. But when it
ran it was still using the old version of the script!
I have a vague memory that when you try to amend a file in "Program Files",
Windows 7 actually makes a copy of the file to some other location, and
makes it appear to be in "Program Files" - I think that's what's going on
In the end I ran my editor as "Administrator", opened the downloaded file
and saved it in the "get_iplayer" directory, and then it FINALLY "stuck" and
my downloads are now working again.
Thanks again, all.
