    You mean to tell me this thread has 40 replies and no one suggested COM Interop? Dude, you could have wired up a simple Form in C# or VB.Net and consume it from you VB6 application via COM Interop....
  2. Re: How to download multiple URLs at the same time?

    QueueUserWorkItem would be the more "old school" way of doing things. I still use it to this day when I don't really need awaitable tasks.

    Re: [RESOLVED] Simple (??) Windows Media Stuff

    This was my experience too. I hate that Media Player component with such a burning passion. I had to jump through so many hoops to get it to work right. One of the most terribly designed interfaces I...
  4. Re: How to download multiple URLs at the same time?

    I could be wrong but I see no point in using Task objects if they're not intended to be used with Await. I'd just go with normal thread pool threads. Thread pools are meant for exactly this kind of...
