How to receive Binary Data using Indy 10

Hi there,
I am trying to build an update feature in my application.
I have Indy 10 installed and am trying to use it to connect and download the latest version of my software from the server.

It seems that I am able to download the data from the server but it comes in a string form. This when downloaded will not run as an exe. I think that I need to download the data in binary format.

Does anyone know how to help. All the examples on the internet that I can see seem to be for Indy 9 and they do not work for Indy 10. Or maybe I just don't know how?

What component are you using to download? TIdFTP?

If yes, then set the TransferType of the FTP component to ftBinary.
