INetGet suddenly starts returning 0 Bytes


Recommended Posts

Just attempting the sample code:

Local $hDownload = InetGet("http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/files/beta/update.dat", @TempDir & "\update.dat", 1, 1)
Until InetGetInfo($hDownload, 2) ; Check if the download is complete.
Local $nBytes = InetGetInfo($hDownload, 0)
InetClose($hDownload) ; Close the handle to release resourcs.
MsgBox(0, "", "Bytes read: " & $nBytes)

Getting BytesRead = 0. INetGet() has worked beautifully for me for years, and it's still working on other machines off my network. Yesterday someone reconfigured our internet connection so I'm guessing that might have something to do with it.

OS = Windows 7

I get 447 bytes on Vista using that code. I'd guess it's probably your internet connection.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Here's some more info:

Bytes read: 0

Size: 0

Complete?: True

Successful?: False

@error: 13

@extended: 12007

Using the script found in this thread:

One of the changes made to my machine yesterday was that the guy configured some dialup connection. I didn't think much of it, but the first page I visited on IE, the browser attempted to use it to connect. I removed that dialup config and used Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections (*) Never dial a connection.

Any idea what kind of internet connection property might be blocking INetGet() from downloading?
