Console output mode?!?

P: n/a
Hi there,

I'm using VB.NET to write CGI apps and I've come across a weird one with
the console. I use the console to output my HTML data, all is fine except
when I output a byte array, for example,

Dim pBytData() As Byte = fileToByteArray(cStrURL)
Dim pStmOutput As Stream = Console.OpenStandardOutput()
Call pStmOutput.Write(pBytData, 0, pBytData.Length)
Call pStmOutput.Close()

The computer beeps continuously once I have done this. I am attempting
to use this for creating a download interface for my web site and I need to
send the files manually. In PHP I would use readfile(). I'm presuming that
I need to set the console to a specific mode before I can do this?

I daren't run it on the server, I don't think they would like me very
much ;-)
