Download from the local network failed.


  • Hello,

    I need help to resolve a problem with a download from a local network. I try to download a JPG-file (with the BackgroundTransfer sample http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsapps/Background-Transfer-Sample-d7833f61) from a PC (over HTTP) localed on the local network. This PC has a WWW-server and I can download files with the desktop Internet Explorer. But I can download files neither with the app nor with the metro IE! An exception occurs if I try to create a download object with BackgroundDownloader::CreateDownload. The HRESULT is 0x80070005, message is "Access is denied.".

    Interestingly, when I download a file direct from the Internet (from any site), the app works!


    Best regards

    I would suggest you to check the Capabilities in your project.


    Double click Package.appxmainfest->Capabilities->Select Internet(Client & Server)

  • Hello Jesse,

    that's just what surprises me. I am using the Microsoft's sample! All capabilities are correctly (Internet + Pictures Lib Access) and the app works even if it uses an internet URL.

    However, I could set the metro Internet Explorer so that it also shows the image from the intranet. I have set the security zone to "Local intranet".

    Is there such a setting options for the app?

    Best regards,
