InetGet not working on some systems

Hey Guys, 


I am having a little trouble with InetGet and I think it might be a Windows Issue, but im not 100% sure. 


Essentially, I have a exe that i am telling AutoIt to download using InetGet .... InetGet($RemoteFile,$LocalFile) ..... It works on my Windows 7 Laptop, but if i run it on my Windows 7 VM then it doesnt work, it never downloads the file. 


I have tried setting the LocalPath to save to @TempDir, I have tried giving it a path to download it to in multiple different locations on the hard drive, nothing seems to work ... even though it works 100% flawlessly on my Windows 7 Laptop. 

I tried turning off UAC, but that didnt help. This might not be within the scope of what the forums handle, but are there some settings for IE or Windows that have to be set in order for InetGet to download a file from an http site (Its an internal http site if that makes a difference)?


Also, is there some way I can get an actual error out of InetGet to figure out why its failing?

Ok, nevermind, it isnt InetGet that is the problem ....


I made a simple InetGet Test and it worked fine on both systems

#include <InetConstants.au3>

$RemotePath = ""
$DownloadPath = @UserProfileDir & "\MUDT\mudt.exe"



The problem is that i am getting that RemotePath from an Ini and my VM cant get the remotepath from that Ini for some reason. Thanks for the help though.

I had a similar problem of no connectivity from AutoIt scripts (I was using WinHTTP and MSXML) and found out a weird but old Windows bug and more weird solution: InetGet() any page at the starting of my script :blink:

Well, take a look and check if it helps you:
