Hi  all,

Please help. I cannot download the files in loop. !st loop work perfect. Second loop the process die at
length = theResponse.ContentLength . Plese help me correct my code. I check already, the loop no problem.
Public Sub ChangeTexts(ByVal length As Long, ByVal position As Integer, ByVal percent As Integer, ByVal speed As Double)
 
        Me.lblFileSize.Text = "File Size: " & Math.Round((length / 1024), 2) & " KB"
 
        Me.lblFileName.Text = "Downloading: " & filename
 
        Me.lblStatus.Text = "Downloaded " & Math.Round((position / 1024), 2) & " KB of " & Math.Round((length / 1024), 2) & "KB (" & Me.ProgressBar.Value & "%)"
 
        If speed = -1 Then
            Me.lblSpeed.Text = "Speed: calculating..."
        Else
            Me.lblSpeed.Text = "Speed: " & Math.Round((speed / 1024), 2) & " KB/s"
        End If
 
        Me.ProgressBar.Value = percent
 
 
    End Sub
 
 
 
    Private Sub backgroundwork()
        Dim ServerPath As String

Try opening and closing the response object for every file. Look at the following;
