Loader having "An exception has occurred during a WebClient request" Error. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello I'm coding a loader for a a cheat that is still in development. I am trying to figure out the error code of "an exception has occurred during a webclient request" but I can't find out whats causing it here is my code:
    private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    WebClient wb = new WebClient();
    string HWIDLIST = wb.DownloadString("url that im not telling u"); // HWID List to make sure the program has the right users and not some kid with this loader.
    if (HWIDLIST.Contains(textBox1.Text)) // You can add ! before the url to make it blacklisted instead of whitelisted.
    string mainpath = "C:\\ProgramFiles\\KingSense\\KingSense.dll"; // path to cheat dll
    wb.DownloadFile("url that im not telling u", mainpath); //Add the url to the dll that the cheats gonna have.
    var name = "csgo"; //csgo's process name
    var target = Process.GetProcessesByName(name).FirstOrDefault();
    var path = mainpath;
    var file = File.ReadAllBytes(path);

  • Two things to try.

    First wrap the offending code in a try/catch, when the exception happens inspect if there are inner exceptions.

    Second, have Fiddler running and watch for issues.

    Edit: cheats are not the sort of thing we get into here.

  • The error means something went wrong with the web request, obviously.  Does the site you're downloading from require logging in?  Is it HTTPS?

    Are you able to copy-and-paste your URLs into a browser and have them succeed?  Even an "incognito" window that doesn't have your cookies memorized?

    Did you create the folder C:\ProgramFiles\KingSense before you started?  WebClient won't do that for you.

    Is that a web site you control?  Because only an idiot would download and execute code from a random web page -- especially one dealing in cheating.

  • Hi Varrious,

    Thank you for posting here.

    Do you mean you are making a cheat program?

    This is a bad behavior for any reason, and we don't support it.

    The Visual C# forum discusses and asks questions about the C# programming language, IDE, libraries, samples, and tools.
