To prevent issues with antivirus (https://virusscan.jotti.org/en-US/filescanjob/kzzy27svtq) I will start programming in pure VB.Net  in 2018 :badgrin:
It produces small executables too.

Code: [Select]
Imports System.Net

Module Module1
    Public WithEvents client As New WebClient()
    Public stillDownloading As Boolean

    Sub Main()
        stillDownloading = True
        client.DownloadFileAsync(New Uri("http://masm32.com/board/index.php?topic=6771.0"), "test.html")
        While stillDownloading
        End While

        Dim filePath As String = ".\test.html"
        Dim psi As New ProcessStartInfo(filePath)
        psi.WorkingDirectory = IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(filePath)
        Process.Start(psi)
    End Sub

    Private Sub Client_DownloadProgressChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DownloadProgressChangedEventArgs) Handles client.DownloadProgressChanged
        Console.WriteLine(String.Format("{0} %", e.ProgressPercentage))
        If e.ProgressPercentage = 100 Then
            Console.WriteLine("Download completed")
            stillDownloading = False
        End If
    End Sub

To be more confident let me check in another site:
https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/283bf0921aaffd360edec353d9698e679e6dfaf12319100c7d2451a42f705899/detection
Damn, CrowdStrike Falcon (never heard about it before) says it is malware with 80% confidence.   :(

Wow, it is a quite good example, where are the masm sources?  :biggrin:

Thanks :t

This is a MASM source (it assembles with Masm, right?). If you need more detail, check \Masm32\MasmBasic\MasmBasic.inc and \Masm32\MasmBasic\Res\MbGui.asm

These are good intentions, José :t

Your code has little problems, though:
Code: [Select]
TmpFile.bas(14) : error BC30002: Tipo 'ProcessStartInfo' non definito
TmpFile.bas(16) : error BC30451: 'Process' non dichiarato
(warning: VB is a Micros**t product!)

It works here, I was even able to run it, imagine!

It was built with MASM (probably) and it builds with MASM because you had not the time (yet) to build your own HLL compiler. May be in 2018 you can handle that part.

After searching a bit for the error messages, I found the culprit:
Code: [Select]
Imports System.Net ' José's original code
Imports System.Diagnostics ' added by JJ to make it work
...
End Module ' added by JJ to make it work

And voilà, it builds fine, and even starts downloading something :t
Then it gets stuck and hangs at 100% cpu load. Fortunately, it can be killed with Task Manager :icon_mrgreen:

@JJ
1- Imports System.Diagnostics is a default imported namespace in my VS 2017 installation and I swear that it is the first time I use VB.Net in 2017 and I have not changed anything.

2. If it gets stuck is because you are trying to make a Forms Application and my example is for a Console application.
       While stillDownloading
        End While
will not make a console app get stuck because Client_DownloadProgressChanged comes from a different thread and the download is asynch.

Console output:
Code: [Select]
0 %
0 %
100 %
Download completed

Doesn't look like a "Forms Application", whatever that is 8)

Btw that doesn't look like good programming practice. Shouldn't there be at least a Sleep(1) inside?
Code: [Select]
        While stillDownloading
        End While

Yeah, but I could not remember how to say Sleep in VBNet-ish.  :lol:

The learning curve will be steep, but you are still young, so we are all optimistic :icon14:
I will start programming in pure VB.Net  in 2018 :badgrin:

P.S.: Just tested my download snippet in Win10 home, it builds & works like a charm. Normal user account, it doesn't even warn me - I am always impressed how easy it is to download stuff in Windows. No wonder people catch viruses :badgrin:

Every kid can learn VB Net in a few hours.  :icon14:
I like to know a bit of every programming language, but am not into those that try to do everything for me.
BTW, I found that Sleep is System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.Sleep
On the other end you can hang a Forms application with long sleeps. What I use to do in other programming languages is a small sleep followed by an instruction to pump the waiting messages. This is probably doEvents in VB Net.

It uses resources for dialog definition. Compiled under wine. Full archive attached.
Edit: It hangs if it can't resolve and/or connect to url (at least on wine), it must be full one (with the protocol prefix), it also will overwrite any existing file that's same as in url upon attempting to download it, so please be careful.
