This page http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms178194.aspx has a download for Visual Studio project code.  I suspect you have to 'look like a browser' to get the cookies from a web server.

Thanks for the link. But it is trying to get a handle on the code when you visit a website rather than when you are writing the code inside a website.
