my program need to download binary files from internet using http protocol.

I use WinInet library to perform this task. The problem is that process is very slow. Connecting only takes about 5 secs (not constant) and download process takes 2-3 times more than another compiled program I have.

May someone help me with WinInet API or recommend another API to perform a task?

Slavak!


i recently had the EXACT same problem you are having, where i needed to get a file over HTTP protocol..

I found a freeware Delphi component to do this...

I'm now using this component...It works perfectly, and it does everything i need it to..

Its called THTTPCli, and you can download it from this address:

http://www.rtfm.be/fpiette/httpcliuk.htm


the ZIP file has the necessary files you need to install the component, and it comes with excellent examples..


i highly reccommend that people use this component..

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
