Get a file using XMLHTTP

Is this the correct newsgroup for this posting?
I have a problem when using these lines of code:

Dim xmlhttp as Object
set xmlhttp = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
Call xmlhttp.Open("GET", Application.Profiles.ActiveProfile.Server &
"/Test.abc", False):
Call xmlhttp.send("");

when the last line of code is executed, i get the following error message:

"The download of the specified resource has failed. -2146697208"
Application.Profiles.ActiveProfile.Server = http://x.x.x.x/virtualdirectory
What is wrong with this code?
Thank you

Only if you are doing this in server-side asp code. If you are doing it in
client-side code, then .scripting.vbscript would be your best bet, unless
you need to support non-IE browsers, that is, in which case
..scripting.jscript would be better.

No, you're definitely in the wrong place. This is not vbscript, so it can't
be ASP.

Thank you Bob for pointing me to the correct newsgroup, i will post in there
next time for
vbscript related code.

I think i found the cause of my problem. If i try downloading a .ABC file it
works.
My actual problem was downloading .VBA

It looks to me the firewall most likely is blocking the .VBA to be
downloaded
(or maybe the anti-virus), because if i try downloading .EXE, that fails
too.
