Downloading file from internet in vb6

Last Modified: 2013-12-25
Hello Experts, I'm downloading a .csv file from a site, through vb6 code.
When the file is downloaded, IE shows "File Download" DialogBox, from where user can click on "save" Button, to save the file on LocalHDD.

I want the path of the File saved on LocalHDD!!! OR Is there any way to Download the file to a specific folder SILENTLY (means without showing FILE DOWNLOAD DialogBox to the User).

I'm Using "Inet" control in vb6.

Hope you have understood my problem.
