    Download an application file from an URL

    An appn file is compiled and uploaded to Google drive. Using the download link is it possible to programmatically download that application file into a specific folder ?

    Process.Start(txtURLLink.Text) opens the browser and then downloads.

    But I want it to be something like this... (if possible)

    Dim web_client As WebClient = New WebClient
    web_client.DownloadFile(txtURLLink.Text, "F:\ZM\myAppn.exe")

    Some sites don't provide direct links to files for download but only generate one via script in a web page. If that's what's happening to you then you're out of luck. Even if there's a way to do it, this site doesn't allow discussion of circumventing legitimate mechanisms like this.

    You may find it possible if you first .zip your .exe, and then download that.
