Does anyone know that how to trigger another program after the downloading finishes? For example, if I finish downloading a avi file, then
i need to open my own video player to show that file.

Thanks

Very simple: You know about changings in
file! How? Use Filemon from
http://www.sysinternals.com/filemon.htm
Exectly in end of download will be created new file, and you get message
about it.
I hope, it helps. Alex
