Windows 7: WGET help?

WGET help?

I couldn't find a suitable forum so I thought I would ask you guys.

I downloaded GNU WGET to have a mess about with and I ran a sample script and it downloaded example.com but I can't find where it downloaded to. Anything I have found says it goes to the directory you ran it from but nothing shows up.

Any ideas?

Can you post the sample script?
How are you running it?

I went into the install directory

and just ran

# Download the entire contents of example.com
wget -r -l 0 Example Web Page

i found it on wikipedia. i tried running from desktop and it worked so now im thinking i just didnt have the right permissions to write to the program files folders? there were no errors when it ran it just didn't seem to save

I just ran a simple command line wget to my own http server and index.html was download to the current directory so that is indeed how it works. Need to see the script you are using, how you are running it to help.

Ah, no, you can't write to the Program Files or Program Files (x86) folders. Really shouldn't be anyway.

That'll be why then

I was thrown off because it didn't tell me there was a problem

That is strange. I would have thought you'd get some kind of error message.
