I'm creating a CD that when inserted into a CD-Rom will AutoRun, which brings up the program starting with a splash screen, then the first window form. All this works, no problem. On the first window form I have a button (one of many) all buttons work (so far) except this one button. (I actually haven't test3d the buttonjs to see if they work on / from a CD yet, but they work in Debug).

I would like to have the user click the button, and have that button be tied to a zip file or an exe file that is in a folder on my CD, that will be downloaded to the user's computer. I would like the usual window to come up asking the user where the user would like to save the file, the user will choose the folder, click the save button and the file downloads from the CD to the hard drive of the user's computer, so the user can open it later. It doesn't have to Run from the CD, it is just to download to be accessed later.
Some files will be a Zip and others are Exe files that I would like to have downloaded to the user's PC by way of a button click. Of course the user's computer will need to be able to know which drive the CD is in.
This is what I've tried and doesn't seem to work...Have not tried it from directly from CD (Haven't tried anything directly from the CD as of yet, but after this problem my next step is try and make a AutoRun CD and test the program).
I'll start another post for How to Make my Program ready for a CD. I think it may involve Publishing...but publishing only made a setup.exe, which is Not what I want.
