Product Manager for RDNA



Work in (slow) progress. This program is replacing the no longer functional RDNA Downloader. It's basically for browsing RDNA products downloaded with the RDNA downloader. You may need to use the Product Data Converter below in order to make your products data and pictures display correctly.

Freeware. Windows XP SP3, Vista, 7, 8, 10. Required: NET Framework 4.0.

Do not install in any of the Program Files folders, use ProgramData (usually hidden) or some other folder of your choice. Just unzip and run exe file.

Product Data Converter

For those who have used the Get Extra Product Page Pictures feature in the downloader the Product Manager should work right away with the existing Root folder. This feature does not work however if you have used the Add Date Folder and/or Add Order# Folder options under Settings, and since many seem to have done that I've written a converter that will work with these folder structures. Same system and installation requirements as the Product Manager.

To convert the folders proceed as follows:

  1. Go to the Settings tab, click the Select Root Folder button and select the Root folder used by the downloader. Then click the Select Destination Folder button and create a new folder which will be used as Root folder by the Product Manager. Make sure to have enough space on the drive where you put the new folder, at least as much as the size of the old Root folder plus some (1+ GB extra recommended to be on the safe side) for any new files.
  2. Click the Convert Folders button to convert and copy the old files to the new folder (may take a while). The Date and/or Order# folders will be removed and all product folders will be placed in the new Root folder. The old folder will not be modified in any way.
  3. When the conversion has finished click the Update button, this will download any extra pictures, PDF and text files etc. on the product pages that haven't been downloaded from the RDNA server or elsewhere yet, as well as convert some data in the XML files. When finished you'll see a list of the new pictures and files that have been downloaded plus some YouTube links (if you dont see anything listed at all there may not have been anything to download or convert). NOTE: you must be online for the Update process to work and you should do this before the RDNA server shuts down Dec. 31 as the extra files will be gone after that.

When the Update has finished the converted product data are now compatible with the new Product Manager, just select the converted folder as Root folder on the Settings tab. Click Load Products and you can browse the products by clicking on their names or using the arrow up/down keys. The Product Manager will be updated with improvements later, it will check for updates automatically when you start it.
