aria2 is a download utility with resuming and segmented downloading.
Using the makefile aria2.mak, I successfully ported aria2 to Windows using the Debian MinGW cross-compiler. While aria2 compiles under native MinGW and Cygwin, the resultant executable was buggy using the supplied gcc version 3.4.5, and numerous unit tests fail.

The latest MinGW binary, and source code is available at https://sourceforge.net/projects/aria2/files/.
I tried setx, and other environmental editors, but none did everything I wanted. Some would change the value from REG_EXPAND_SZ to REG_SZ. Other's wouldn't let me add a REG_EXPAND_SZ variable such as %ProgramFiles%.

The program includes a complete test suite. Using it, I even discovered a few anomolies with the Microsoft tools regedit, and reg. Here's the changelog:
