I want to download a file from a web site "exe or zip" and show a simple download
progress bar & text. Similar to the one we all see when IE downloads a file.
Bytes received / total [--- ] etc..

The winsock activeX control seems to be useless for this. I can connect but
not download anything. The Internet transfer control will download a file
but you can NOT check the byte progress without stopping the transfer. I
prefer not to use a third party control. I'm sure this has to be possible
with plain old VB and the controls that come with it. (VB6 SP3)

Any suggestions? An API solution is fine if it will work.
