I have looked all over and cannot find Winhttp 5.1 SDk for installation and use on my VB6 development machine.  Apparently it comes bundled with XP which I am using, and I see the winhttp.dll in the system32 folder, but in the VB6 IDE, I cannot add this component, get an error "could not add component" despite it finds the dll and shows the description "Microsoft WinHTTP Services, version 5.1" in the components tab when I browse to the winhttp.dll file.  I wish to use a code posting by PaulHews to automatically log into a web page and get web page data programmatically using VB6 but can't even get past adding winhttp to my project
