WebBrowser Control - cannot download from site

Rabbit80 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
In my application, I have created a webbrowser object to display a set of results which link to PDF documents. Through IE everything works fine, however in my application I am unable to download these documents. The Open / Save dialog box appears but for some reason just errors out when trying either option.

Is this a limitation of using an embedded webbrowser or have I overlooked something? Is there an easy way in which I can trap this error?
