Project Description
Download daily wallpapers images directly from bing.com

This small sub 100Kb application written in C# can download images from Bing.com and store in your local PC.
Just execute it everyday. (Or get help from Windows Scheduler)

Note: As of now this is not a background app. It runs, downloads and archives the image and exits.

Release Notes**

Release 3.0 Update**
Download 7 images...
Now with UK, China and Canada, Germany as well.
A new BingHelper engine that makes it easier to add more countries in future easily.
BingDownloader 3.0 also displays the hot text from Bing Website and the image name/copyrights...
The executable size is also considerably smaller.

  • For Developers **
My source code in codeplex has gotten really bad...
Download folder BD3.0 in ChangeSet 26508
That contains the complete code. Just double click the sln and open it in VS 2008 Express Edition.
Ignore everything else...



Release 2.1 Update**
Download three Images.
Seems like Bing Japan has a slightly different image than US.
Now, BingDownloader downloads US, Japan and International images.

Release 2.0 Update**
This is huge... like Windows 95
Download both International Version and US Version bing images.
Much cleaner UI.

Release 1.2 Update**
This release fixes the GDI error issue.

Release 1.1 Update**
The app now creates files in "BingImages" folder with Pacific Date rather than the current system date.
This is because bing.com images change every 12:00 AM Pacific time.

Release 1.0 Update**
The app requires .NET Framework 3.5. I've recompiled the app in .NET Framework 2.0 and added that binary.
Please download that if you have issues running BingDownloader.
