I think it's just a link problem.

Have you tried to add Wininet.lib to your project ? (If it fails read the help perhaps you have to add a higher level library...but try wininet.lib first)

To add this lib just go to you project settings and in the link tab just add WININET.LIB in "Object/library modules" edit box.

Hi, bluezen

In "Project->Setting->General->Microsoft Foundation Classes" U select "Use MFC in a static labrary" / "Use MFC in a shared DLL"?
