    Windows Internet Connection...

    Hello all! I have a question regarding establishing a dialup connnection on a Windows machine. I have program which gives continuous stock information on any given NYSE listed company. The problem is, I want the user to allow the program to automatically establish the connection to their ISP via my program. When I searched my hard drive for the executable that initiates this process, all I could find was a weird .htt file that is written in Javascript! No trace of the actual EXE. If I had the EXE I could spawn it off, but currently I have no clue where it is. Any ideas?

    WOW i was having the same problem but if you re-compiled your program I think it automatically deletes it if you have errors...

    It doesn't delete it just because you have errors. It deletes it b4 it starts compiling.

    not sure. that kind of thing varies greatly from computer to computer. you're better off letting windows or the user handle that for you.

    You are probably right, and that was my original thought. However, every little bit of automation helps! See, my plan is to prompt the user for the name, password, and number to dial upon program installation. I will then search the drive for appropriate list of valid .exe's. After setup, the user will be able to see an update without having to click anything else...

    Thank you for the dash of realism, though!
