It is an interesting bug when it works on a 32-bit build but not a 64-bit build. I tested all three URLs on my local Linux machine with both a 32-bit and 64-bit build of Wget 1.19 and found no issues.

Sadly, I do not have a Windows machine to test this on. The debug logs (with the -d switch) may be useful. Or someone else that understands Windows better could try and help.

However, since you're using Windows 10, you could try using the Linux Subsystem for Windows which would have a wget binary built natively for Linux.

I used the 64-bit binary of wget version 1.19.1-win64 for downloading a series of PDF files from a few websites. In three cases, the program was terminated with an error message before all files were downloaded (the usual windows message that the program doesn't work anymore, is not executed correctly due to a problem, and is terminated). With the corresponding 32-bit version (wget-1.19.1-win32) all files were downloaded without any problem.

Here the three error-yielding entries that I executed from a batch file (not together, each for itself):
wget64 -r -l 1
wget64 -r -l 1
wget64 -r -l 1

My operating system: Windows 10 64-bit.

Attached you find screenshots of two of the three cases described above.

Thanking You,
