    1 - This is the C forum. Perhaps a mod will move your post.
    2 - Don't spam the board with posts on the same topic. We'll assume you hit the button twice on accident.

    1 - That looks like C#. Moved.
    2 - The boards been slow, so that's probably the case.

    Your post count is zero, despite the fact that you have one post in this thread. I screwed something up while deleting the duplicate thread which caused your post count to be decremented twice.

    I have tried recreating your "freezing" problem using the DownloadFile method. I did not have any success recreating the problem. The method was tested with several source sites and file sizes ranging from 18K to 14meg.

    IMHO, it may be that your source site is extremely slow or it has some other downloading issues. Or you possibly have coding issues. I can only assume that you have properly used a separate thread for the downloading process in a GUI app.

    Bottomline, DownloadFile works flawlessly for me.

    My "creation" works like a charm... It may be possible your GUI code has threading issues. Thus, causing the "freeze" problem.

    Code:
    using System;
    using System.Web;
    using System.IO;
    using System.Net;
    using System.Collections;
    
    class Class1
    {
        /// <summary>
        /// The main entry point for the application.
        /// </summary>
        [STAThread]
            static void Main(string[] args)
            {
            string url =   "http://mysite.com/haha.mst"; 
            string destino = "C:\\temp\\test.mst"; 
            try
            {
                WebClient client = new WebClient ();
                client.DownloadFile(url, destino); 
            }
            catch(Exception e)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(e.Message);
            }
        }
    }
