We use FileUpEE 5.3.2 enterprise edition in production and developer in our non-production.

I am trying to try a code to download multiple files from web server to a users local folder.

Could you please help me achieve this functionality. I can able to download one file but not more than 1. Is is because I am using developer edition OR there is different code I have to use.

using ASP.Net scritping using vb.

It doesn't matter whether you are using the developer or production edition of FileUpEE.  The only way to download multiple files at once is to use a rich client like our XFileEE ActiveX control.  This is because the HTTP protocol doesn't provide a way to download more than one file in a single HTTP response.  XFileEE makes it appear to the user as if they are downloading multiple files in one step, but behind the scenes it is making a separate request for each file. 

FileUpEE includes samples that show you how to download multilple files with XFileEE.  Please let me know if this answers your questions.

Thank you Joy!

I will try using the XFileEE and let you know if I am successful.

When I use the Xfile activeX for visual file download, I get the below errors.
Please see if you can identify what might cause this issue?
The file I am trying to download is a dat file with 1KB size.

"An error has occurred during the transfer.

Error: Source = SoftArtisans.XFRequestEE.1
Description = 500 An existing connection for forcibly closed by the remote host.

The custom error catching prints the below in the browser after showing the error message above.

Server Response Status: 500 An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host. An error has occurred during the transfer. Not all files were downloaded successfully."

This means something went wrong with the server-side code.  Are you using our samples or your own code?   If you are able to get our samples working, I suggest using them as a model.
