Hi, I've been having the same problem with BookCat this weekend. Adding in Library of Congress enabled the books to be found, but no data is coming from Amazon UK or USA.

I am having no problem with Amazon USA. All ISBN searches from the original list I try are successful (two not found) using only Amazon USA. Also, transferred all into a new database, all successful - four did not have cover art.

I wonder if this has something to do with the network overload some sites experienced last week? Was Amazon one of those? I'm located in the east coast area of US; location may have something to do with this and the internet/Amazon?

I'm a mac user but I built and maintain a private monastery library using bookcat on their pc. The online downloads (LoC etc) stopped working last year, and I just bumped into two references to new versions of internet.dll that I think might resolve the problem. (The latest one, v253, was referred to by Jean Fran├žois Le Deist on April 7 on the fnprgfans page on facebook, which I don't use so I can't follow up there). However, I'm not sure from where to download this latest version - it's not mentioned on www.fnprg.com. I upgraded to the last release of bookcat (feb.2016) which I believe was 10.25, but I can't check that because I'm a 100 miles from that off-line pc, and there's no version history in the bookcat help file nor release dates on the download page. Can anybody enlighten me?

Hello Hako,

Open Bookcat, go to : "Tools" -> "Check for update" -> It should download the last version

After this, go again to "Tools" -> "Options" -> Tab "Internet" -> Verify that you have the box checked "Automatically download Internet dll"

All should be OK, after this

Thanks, J.F. I'm going to the monastery this Saturday and will follow your advice. Since their internet is not too dependable I will be bringing a copy of the latest bookcat app. I'd like to bring a copy of the most recent "internet.dll" also, but cannot find a URL to download it. Any suggestions?

(If I search for "internet.dll" in therecordroom, I get nothing because it splits the query into "internet dll" and then says both those terms are too generic to warrant an answer!)
