Inetget fails?

Recommended Posts

ryeguy

I have a program deployed on a client's computer and I can't seem to use anything relating to wininet.dll. First, I was using _InetGetSource on my site. Ok that didn't work. I downgraded it to a one line test script that does InetGet("http://google.com","google.html") and even that doesn't work! He is running Win XP SP3 (so yes, the minimum of IE3 is installed). What could be the issue?

I checked and wininet.dll is indeed in system32. I'm assuming if it were corrupted other stuff like IE itself would not work, right? What could be the problem here? He has no firewall, even all the way on the modem level.

InetGet("http://google.com","D:\google.html")

It works!

If you wont on Vista save file to disk "C:\" you need to add this:

#requireadmin

at start of your script.

This is on XP, not vista. And you don't need the absolute location. If you omit it, it just saves it to the current folder.
