    Download from internet w/o using browser?

    How do I tell the mmf2 to download a file without using my computer web browser?
    I'd like the program to download directly from within itself.
    I'm using the "open urls object" and it is opening my browser to download. Is there another object? thank you so much!

    It worked! (but to an extent).
    The problem (which I think is unsolvable) is that since it downloads to a pre specified folder, my program (which is supposed to run for users around the world) will have problems downloading to the pre specified folder because of differences in the folder structure of different Operating systems like win xp and win 7 for example.
    I wish it would just ask: Do you want to run or save this file?
    So I guess I'll just have to stay with the open url object for now. Thanks anyways!

    It isn't too difficult to create the "Run or Save" functionality with the Download Object. You'll probably need to use an open file dialog for the saving portion, for that I would recommend either the File Object or my Powerful Dialogs Object.

    You could do something along the lines of this:

    User chooses to open the file:
    --Download Object: Download file to AppTempPath$+"FileName"
    --Execute an external program: AppTempPath$+"FileName"

    User chooses to save the file:
    --Powerful Dialogs Object: Show Open File Dialog

    Powerful Dialogs Object - Open File Dialog Success:
    --Download Object: Download file to RetString1$( "Powerful Dialogs Object" )
