I am trying to write a program that automatically logs into a website, clicks a link, and clicks a download all link and saves the file to somewhere like c:\downloaded_data\
Everything is working except the download. When my program clicks on the download all link, it brings up an internet explorer window that wants me to log in again, at first I thought it was a cookie problem, but when accessing the site from internet explorer, I checked by using javascript:alert(document.cookie) and there are no cookies set. Has anyone encountered a similar problem before, or knows how to overcome it?

The website is using the https protocol, just in case that messes with anything...
