XMLHTTP + Download a file

I want to download a mydata.pdf file from the webserver to the c:\temp folder. How do I do that using XMLhttp and using verbs such as Get,Post or Put. Code example or snippet would be of great help.

Dim xmlhttp As New Msxml2.xmlhttp
xmlhttp.Open "GET", "http://localhost/mydata.pdf", False

What do I do next?

XMLHTTP.responseStream returns the PDF in an IStream.
