VB .NET To Download Or Not To Download; That Is The Question
I'm looking for some opinions about VB .NET which will ultimately decide whether I download it or not. My first question is how big is the official download for the entire studio? The one on which I am planning to download is 780 mb in a rar archive. If this is much larger than what it should be then please tell me. Perhaps my biggest concern is the amount of hard drive needed, as of now I only have about 378 mb available, but only plan on installing VB. Is this enough? Another one of my concerns is how much of a beta is this. Are you able to uninstall it? Has it ever crashed anybodies hard drive? I have a lot of things that I'm not willing to lose and I would HATE having to reinstall Windows. Does it need a new DLL or does it still work with msvbvm60? Have you noticed a lot of bugs in it? Is it really much better than 6? Please help me out here, 780 is a substantial download for me and I don't want to waste it.

FTP Download
Hi, I am making a program that will connect to an ftp server and download a "text" file. Then it will open up the text file and read. The problem lies on the part where I download the text file.

I'm using the INET FTP object with the Get function.
The problem is that the newlines in the text file are skipped. Somehow, the method of downloading the text file off the ftp is wrong. I'm missing all the newlines. How do I get around this?

XFMain.Inet1.Execute , "GET """ & strRemote & """ " & strLocal


Ok for sake of argument say i have a site called. i want to have inet control on my program and everytime a button is clicked i want that file to be downloaded into the dir "c:chatimg" and if its already there i want the old one to be replaced and the new one saved so the shortcut on my desktop still works. can somebody help me please. Im very in need of help. Thanks.....

Download A Exe
Hi, can somebody improve the code to download a exe, simply as possible

somebody suggested DoFileDownload but i read

The DoFileDialog API call provides one of the easiest to use - and most user-familiar - download dialogs, but it has one flaw - it always displays pointing to the folder the user last used for a file download in Internet Explorer.

Private Sub Form_Load()
On Error GoTo ErrHandle:
Dim VersionNumber As String
Dim Response As Integer

VersionNumber = Inet1.OpenURL("")
If VersionNumber >= App.Major & "." & App.Minor & "." & App.Revision Then GoTo HandleUpgrade:

Responce = MsgBox("Newer Version available, download now?.", vbYesNo, "Version Check")

If Response = vbYes Then

'# download it. #

End If

End Sub

OCX Download
Resolved by manipulating the Internet CAB file, see KB:



I'm posting this here as I'm unclear which of the other forums (ActiveX or ASP) to put it.


I have a design problem I need to get over. I've got an ASP page, on that page is an client reference to an ActiveX EXE. This EXE is used for telephony and screen popping. I don't want to unload and reload this EXE every time the web page closes / opens as the EXE hooks into TAPI and this can potentially cause a delay. The get over I have at present is to have standard EXE that will keep the ActiveX EXE alive.

I want this EXE to be downloaded to the client machine from the website along with the ActiveX exe if it doesn't exist.

My problem is that this EXE is not renferenced by the ActiveX EXE and therefore is not being pulled (altough it exists in the CAB) to the client machine.

Any advice ???

.vbd Download
I have a problem with one of my applications and I'm at my wits end trying to get it resolved. I have an ActiveX Document Exe application that users access through my companies intranet site. Normally when a user access this site, it asks if they want to download an usigned ActiveX document (I don't have a signature), they select yes, and the application is opened.

The problem I'm having is that on this one users machine, instead of opening the application, it asks him if he wants to save it or run it from it's current location. I've ran into this problem before, and using fixes from MS, I've been able to fix the problem. I've tried everything MS suggests on this particular machine, and it still won't open the app.

What could be going on? I've checked the system registry for key's MS said shouldn't be there, and they aren't there. I've recompile my app and re-deployed it, and the problem still persists. The strange thing is, is that I have other similar applications, and the user can access those just fine. This leads me to believe that there is something wrong w/ this particular application.

If anyone has any ideas on what I need to check, I would greatly appreciate your input.

Dear all,

Log In....And Download
Okay i have a program and it uses the inet control and the webbrowser control.

Here is the scenario:

I use web1 to naviaget to a login page, It enters info and submits, I have web1 navigate to a certain page with a file link on it.

When i get there i download the html source code and find the url for the file.

Then i use inet to download this link.

Now next time i login to a different account right after i'm done with the first account, it logs in but won't download the file?

Why would this happen?

Different Download
I have made a program that downloads certain files from the internet shellling to internet explorer. However this means a big blank white box appears along with the download dialof box. Is there a way to just get the dialog box and not the blank window?


I am not sure if it is possible but I was wondering is there any way to track how many bytes,meg or whatever has been sent and received through a network card??

The reason I ask is cause I have a cable connection and it uses a network card to connect to the cabel modem then from there it sends the information to the server and you know how the rest works.

Now the problem is cause it is a cabel connection there is no little icon in the systray that says how long you have been connected and how much has been downloaded. I like to know this information so I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to track this or know of a program thta does this.

Thanks for any help
