We are looking to create a window based download manager such as net ants, Download Accelerator.
How it will work?
Here is an idea how we need to implement this. We have a music web site from where users purchase mp3. We want them to download and install this download manager on your computer to download mp3.
1. Ability to logged in with their user name and password. (The password that was created when they sigend up on website).
2. Website using mssql or ms access database so we have to give some connection preferences to connect to database.
3. Multi Thread Downloading like other download manager have.
4. When full mp3 is downloaded it should have ability to update the recordset as downloaded. So that user can not download it again or redistribute the same mp3 to other.
What we needed
We need to develop this prefebly in Visual Basic but if in any other language you can develop then no problem.
We need full source codes so that whenever the connection string or connection details changed we can change it in source code and re-compile it.
Other option can be : we can create a saperate database from there it can read encrypted login details etc.
Rest on you guys just suggest me what best you can give me?
