  1. Re: VS 2019 - System.IO.IOException - Started out of no where

    That is interesting, I have never known a delay in a file lock being removed when closing a FileStream, perhaps something else is also holding onto the lock - are you running any Anti-Virus programs?

    ClickOnce also has a full API, there is no reason why a running application couldn't check for updates every 6 hours -...
  3. VS 2019 Re: How do I distribute my VB app to a friend ?

    Probably because Click Once is designed to allow installation from a website. On VS 2019 if you go through the publish wizard there is an option for local folder. That should produce a folder with...

    In that case Bimap.SetPixel might be what you are after.

    Could you post the code for the AppendFile method as well?

    Re: Vb6: winhttp get cookies

    Are you sure the website is returning cookies then? Try using the browser's dev tools and see if cookies are returned when using a browser. If so then at least we know cookies are being returned.

  8. Re: List file from http://www.mysite/public/

    That is assuming the feature is even enabled, most webservers disable the ability to list files as it is a potential security risk.

    Also don't forget that he also wants to classify ANTIFA as a terrorist organisation, despite it not being an organisation. It simply doesn't support him and therefore it is the enemy.

  12. Re: Read more the page source with StreamReader?

    Normally those steps would only be required the first time the application is run, after that it shouldn't need authenticating again. In the long run the API is going to be a lot more of a reliable...

    The problem with ASCII is that everything above character 127 isn't part of the ASCII standard, Extended ASCII isn't really a standard, it is a way that different ASCII encodings use the characters...
  16. Re: How to extract a link and some text from webpage with Webclient

    The problem with either Regex or Xml as a solution is they both require the html to conform to the standards exactly, this isn't always the case with webpages.

    Re: we almost got the source to VB6

    That also misses out the other halves - the legality of using it and any 3rd party code that may not be present / licensed in the source anyway.

  22. VS 2019 Re: Select file from listbox show contents in Textbox

    It would help if you told us what errors you are getting, makes troubleshooting far easier.

    Other than that I would check that when you are trying to open a file your application is looking in the...

  24. Re: How to prevent the "Not Secure" from showing on Browser?

    In that case getting a SSL certificate is your first step - https://letsencrypt.org/ might be worth looking at.

    VS 2008 Re: Application giving TLS Error

    Have you tried it? If so are there any obvious compile errors or runtime issues? Might be easier to troubleshoot an upgrade than try to get TLS 1.2 running if the existing environment isn't supported.
