  • Hi Charlie,

    >>Is there a way to set the download directory in visual basic?

    How about using the "DownloadFile" method?

    In addition, you know that this forum is to discuss the VS IDE, since it is related to the VB language development, maybe you could get more useful information from the VB forum:

  • Are you using a form or a console project.  You can use a Folder Dialog to browse for the folder.  The process is a little different depending the type of project you are using.
