    Re: How do i make a download...

    Do you mean the download dialog of Internet Explorer?
    If so:
    VB Code:
    1. Private Declare Function DoFileDownload Lib "shdocvw.dll" (ByVal lpszFile As String) As Long
    2. Private Sub Form_Load()
    3.    DoFileDownload StrConv("http://www.downloadafile.com/file.zip", vbUnicode)
    4. End Sub

    what exactly do you want to do, create an installer for your program? Its easier to use VBs application deployment wizard, find it in the Tools folder. Or you could get a third party setup wizard which is similar to VBs app deploy wizard, such as Inno Setup

    So you're able to create a setup file for your app but once you click on the compiled setup file nothing happens?

    Do you get any messages after you click on the setup exe?
