By matching to your setup I was able to reproduce the problem.  For your reference I attach a file showing the 18 differences.  Now to find the one or ones that trigger the problem.

Daniel,
Have found the problem. ;) Or at least a temporary cure. ;D
One needs to set the Config - Front End tab - ""View Download detail page?" set to Yes.  This takes one to the Summary page for that Download

As you know, if it is set to No then one gets the listing of the Category that contains the Download.  Rather the downloading should be initiated without seeing the Summary page.

PS will move this thread to Bugs

@Colin

Colin,

Thank for your work !

I temporaly  have set option "View Download detail page to "on" until the bug is fixed in a new release.
Very pleased with your support, I would make a donation via paypal for the developement of this extension.

Have a good day

Daniel.

Hi Guys,
I do not understand what I should change here. Where is here a bug?
When a user has deactivated the "View Download detail page" option, i can not use it for the links in the search results.
Best Regards / Gruß

Hopefully the notes below summarise the situation as I see it. The jDownloads search plugin is of course enabled.

If one uses the Standard Joomla Search, the resultant link points directly to the download.

 Using the jD Search button
1)  If "View Download detail page is "on" then the link in the search result points to the Summary Page for the Download, which is correct
2) But if  "View Download detail page is "off" then the link in the search result points to the category which contains the Download so it shows all the Downloads in that category.

 I would have thought in case 2 it would point directly to the Download as is the situation with the Joomla! search.

Then has the plugin a bug! When the 'view details page' is not used, we can not create links to him.
If they do, then this is a contradiction. Or we must give the admins a hint in the description from this option.  ::)

Edit:
Maybe should we discuss a little bit about the option: "View Download detail page".
My opinion is, that it makes only then sense to deactivate this option, when all Downloads have stored only very low informations in the db.
As example only the title, size, date etc. but not descriptions.
