    Does anybody know where can I get a copy of the Internet Transfer Control ??

    It's available in VB6, but not in Access.

    Thank you.

    No license ?

    When I tried to place a copy of the Internet transfer control into a form, an error message appeared saying something to this effect "you have no license to use this control".

    How can I fix this ? Do you have any idea ?
    Thank you in advance.

    Try to register it first:
    Go to Start|Run, type regsvr32 msinet.ocx, and press Enter. Click OK in the prompt, restart your Access session, and try again.

    Still doesn't work...

    Thank you for your reply.

    I did. I did exactly that. And the same error message still appeared.
    I have attached a screen shot of the error message.

    Thank you.

    In my PC, when I was using VB6, I can insert an Internet Transfer Control.
    But not in MS Access. Why the difference ?

    Anyway, that control was produced by Microsoft. How can I purchase one ?
    Thanks.

    different controls are bundled with different development environments. its quite common to have controls which you are licenced to use in Access but not in VB and vice versa, or cotrols that worked in one environment/version but not another later environment.

    thats how microsoft licence their software. I presume its a function of their marketing, it a function of how they run their business, it may be an assumption of how they presume people using their products will develop software using those products. Sometimes controls are just bundled with whatever is being shipped, sometimes a specific set of controls will be released in reaction to a competitors bundle of controls, sometimes the control isn't deemed relevant to that environment. thinking back to the late 90's Microsoft got left behind in the dash for the internet, I could well see that they release a control to access the internet from within their development paltforms. as time has moved on either they don't see that control being relevant to Access.

    so I'd suggest if you have issues with that you approach Microsoft.

    if you want a licence for that control to use in an Access application talk to Microsoft

    otherwise I'd suggest you find an equivalent control written by someone else that will do the job you require for your application
    as a final alternative you could write your own control that does just what you want.

    I got it. I got the msinet.ocx from my Office XP developer edition at HOME.
    Previously the copy was from VB6. Perhaps that version is incompatible with Access 2003, which I used in WORKPLACE.

    So now the internet transfer control is inserted successfully into my form.
    But when I ran the program, it didn't download any file !

    What did I do wrong ?

    (Other ways succeeded in downloading files for me, including a Win32API procedure; but they don't accept username and password, so they work only with public servers. I am working with a private server.)
