  • Hi,

    >>but, rarely, some PCs occur an error, INET_E_DOWNLOAD_FAILURE

    I think your code is ok because it can work fine in most of the PC.

    Do they download file using the same IE? Or does any other software that stop download?

    And please pay attention to the information below.

    Windows Internet Explorer 8. URLDownloadToFile does not support IBindStatusCallbackEx and cannot be used to download files over 4 gigabytes (GB) in size. Refer instead to IBindStatusCallbackEx::GetBindInfoEx for a code example.

    Best regadrs,
