[C++] Login to facebook with WinINet!

I'm making an application for and i need to check if a login is valid for facebook. POST request works fine, there is no problem with https but I seems like WinINet doesnt use cookies!
Do you have any idea how to resolve this problem?
#include <windows.h>
#include <wininet.h>
#include <string>
#include <iostream.h>
using namespace std;
void main()
	static char hdrs[] = ("Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
	static char frmdata[] = ("email=qiller@hotmail.com&pass=qwertyasdf");
	static LPSTR accept = ("*/*", NULL);
	string m_strURL;
	HINTERNET hSession, hDownload, hRequest;
	hSession = InternetOpen("DFBAC", INTERNET_OPEN_TYPE_DIRECT, NULL, NULL, 0);
	hDownload = InternetConnect(hSession, "login.facebook.com", INTERNET_DEFAULT_HTTPS_PORT, NULL, NULL, INTERNET_SERVICE_HTTP, 0, 0);
	hRequest = HttpOpenRequest(hDownload, "POST", "/login.php?login_attempt=1", "HTTP/1.1", NULL, NULL, INTERNET_FLAG_SECURE, 0);
	HttpSendRequest(hRequest, hdrs, strlen(hdrs), frmdata, strlen(frmdata));
	if ( hRequest )
		CHAR buffer[1024];
		DWORD dwRead;
		while ( InternetReadFile( hRequest, buffer, 1023, &dwRead ) )
			if ( dwRead == 0 )
			buffer[dwRead] = 0;
			cout << buffer << endl;
			m_strURL += buffer;

No, sorry - you get the data transmitted after you log on and that data is what you use for that API call. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa384321.aspx ("HTTP Cookies") for more about cookies and how they're transmitted.
