Problem with file download in IE 9 and IE 10 using vbMHWB.dll RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have been using vbMHWB.dll ( in our vb6 code to download files from website.
    But in ‘windows 7 – Internet explorer 9’ and ‘windows 8 – Internet explorer 10’ we have encountered some problem in file download(working fine in XP, windows7 IE8) through code. No problem comes if we download the file in Internet Explorer manually using browser.
    In our code, ‘.zip’ file was not downloaded properly after event ‘myWeb_PopUp_FileDownloadEx’
    ( 0 Kb file will be created and it cannot be deleted unless vb6 exe is closed, and after closing VB6 exe, full .zip file is created) 
    We have also noticed that ‘myWeb_PopUp_OnFileDLEndDownload’ event is also not fired in this case.The problem with this download will come most of the time i tried it, but only few time the file gets downloaded properly.

    Is there any problem or extra settings in IE9, IE10?

    Thank you.
