    Hello,

    I need to download a specific file from a website and have to save it into a local directory on my harddisk. Does anyone has a solution please?

    TIA

    Hi Lucas,

    Personally, I'm very happy with the win32 API: URLDownloadToFile
    e.g.
    IF URLDownloadToFile( 0, "http://www.thewebsite.com/thefile.zip", "c:\mydir\thefile.zip", 0, 0 ) != S_OK
    Alert( "Error downloading file.")
    EndIf
    and here is the wrapper:
    _DLL FUNCTION URLDownloadToFile( pCaller As long, cURL As String, cFileName As String,;
    dwResv As dword, lpfnCB As long) AS INT PASCAL:urlmon.URLDownloadToFileA

    A more specific example can be found in \wntk4hrb\ntkrad\activexdemo\flashdemoOO.prg
    Hope this helps.
    Ab
