downloading zip file

Recommended Posts


I am trying to download a zip file with .NET Compact Framework from our server. I couldnot able to write the contents of my zip file into a directory. Could any one please tell me how to do it with .Net CF?

I am using the following code but its creating the directory but not writing the zip file into directory.

// Create a request for the URL.

HttpWebRequest req = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("http://doxtop01:88/z/ec284451.zip");

req.Method = "GET";

req.ContentType = "application/zip";

req.Timeout = 10000;

HttpWebResponse resp = (HttpWebResponse)req.GetResponse();

// Retrieve response stream and wrap in StreamReader

Stream respStream = resp.GetResponseStream();

//StreamReader rdr = new StreamReader(respStream);

string localPath = "/Programme";

//File file = new File(localPath, FileMode.Open);

// Specify the directories you want to manipulate.

DirectoryInfo di = new DirectoryInfo(localPath + "/Content");

if (di.Exists == false)


string location = di.FullName + "/ec284451";

DirectoryInfo pub_di = new DirectoryInfo(location);


FileStream fwrter = new FileStream(location, FileMode.Open);

// Allocate byte buffer to hold file contents

byte[] inData = new byte[4096];

// loop through the local file reading each data block

// and writing to the request stream buffer

int bytesRead = respStream.Read(inData, 0, inData.Length);

while (bytesRead >0)


fwrter.Write(inData, 0, bytesRead);

bytesRead = respStream.Read(inData, 0, inData.Length);
