How to get FtpCommand working?
I can't seem to compile this function.

I've added #include <Wininet.h>, and I added Wininet.lib to my project settings, but I still get the following compiler error:
error C2065: 'FtpCommand' : undeclared identifier

If this command is not functional, how can I do a chmod command via FTP using Wininet functions or CFtpConnection class?

I'm compiling to NT and Win98.

I find the following in WININET.H:

BOOLAPI FtpCommandA(
    IN HINTERNET hConnect,
    IN BOOL fExpectResponse,
    IN DWORD dwFlags,
    IN LPCSTR lpszCommand,
    IN DWORD_PTR dwContext,
    OUT HINTERNET *phFtpCommand OPTIONAL
    );
BOOLAPI FtpCommandW(
    IN HINTERNET hConnect,
    IN BOOL fExpectResponse,
    IN DWORD dwFlags,
    IN LPCWSTR lpszCommand,
    IN DWORD_PTR dwContext,
    OUT HINTERNET *phFtpCommand OPTIONAL
    );
#ifdef UNICODE
#define FtpCommand  FtpCommandW
#else
#define FtpCommand  FtpCommandA
#endif // !UNICODE

I think that the problem is:

1) You are not properly including WININET.H in your build.
2) Your SDK header files are incorrect or out-of-date.

Have you checked YOUR WININET.H to verify that this declaration is present?

That's not in my version of Wininet.

What version of VC++ do you have?

I'm using version 6.0

If you're using 6.0, what service pack do you have?

It doesn't matter what version of VC++ or what SP of VC++ you have.  The SDK is not the same as VC++.

Download the latest Windows SDK from Microsoft.

See:

Which Windows SDK?
There are seven listed.

I installed all the SDK (except .NET), and I still get the same compiler error

I found the path for the new wininet.h in this path
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDK\include

And the new lib is in this path
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDK\Lib

So how do I get VC++ to see the new header and libs over the old?

Shouldn't this have been done automatically when installing the new SDK?

Go to Tools->Options
Select directories
Add the following:
C:\PROGRAM FILES\MICROSOFT SDK\INCLUDE
Move the newly added directory to the top of the list, by using the little arrows.

Change the "Show directories for" field to LIBRARY-FILES
Then add the following to the list:
c:\PROGRAM FILES\MICROSOFT SDK\LIB
Again, move then newly added directory to the top of the list.

That should do it.
