Could you please take a look at this one too?

There's a difference between getting a response code saying that a resource's location has moved (3xx) and a web server fulfilling a request for a given resource by processing the request for you (from wherever it may reside).  The prior is being handled on the client-side (browser, script, etc.) and the former is handled server-side (web server, reverse proxy server, etc.).  Your first URL gave a response code 302, meaning the location has temporarily moved.  Your new URL gave a response code 200, meaning the request was successful, and the downloading of the file was initiated -- not a redirection (3xx).

Requested URL: https://chromeenterprise.google/browser/download/?platform=WIN_MSI&channel=stable&usagestats=0
HTTP Status:   200 OK

HTTP Response:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta name="no_page_title" value="true"/>

I unterstand the difference of the response codes. But my goal is downloading the file. The second example gives me nothing back that i could use with inetget().
My knowlegde of HTTP is too low to understand what i have to do to get it working. So i have one more question...

Is it maybe possible using the winhttp.au3 for downloading the file in the sample code you created when the response code is 200?

Thx for helping 🙂
