    WinINet Problems

    Hi i got a problem with following Function:

    Code:
    void GetFiles()
    {
       FILE* pFile;
       DWORD ReadFiles,dwSize;
       char buf[1025];
       HINTERNET hInternet, hFile;
       
       hInternet = InternetOpen("sCC Patcher", INTERNET_OPEN_TYPE_DIRECT, NULL, NULL, 0);
       hFile = InternetOpenUrl(
          hInternet,
          "someurl",
          NULL,
          0,
          INTERNET_FLAG_RELOAD,
          INTERNET_NO_CALLBACK
       );
         
       pFile = fopen("l2.exe", "w+");
       
       InternetReadFile(hFile, buf,  1024,  &ReadFiles);
       while(ReadFiles != 0)
       {
          fwrite ( buf, ReadFiles, 1, pFile );
          InternetReadFile(hFile, buf,  1024,  &ReadFiles);
       }
       fwrite ( buf, ReadFiles, 1, pFile );
       fclose(pFile);
    }
    The File gets downloaded, but its too big. When i compare original to downloaded file hexwise, i can see that some bytes are twice there in the downloaded file, and as far as i can judge, all the original stuff is there.
    If it help i can upload original and downloaded file.

    Thx

    I think you need to open the file in binary mode:
    Code:
    fopen("l2.exe", "wb");
