I need help debugging an application that uses Wininet. The application is able to access web pages from most systems. The few instances it will not are: 1. When Norton Internet Security Professional version 2003 or 2004 is loaded. Even though we tell Norton to allow the application full access, the app can't see the web. The application works without any problems behind other software firewalls. 2. When using NetZero Platinum as the ISP, I have found that NetZero installs itself as a proxy server. If I wait until NetZero is running and then add the web site I want to access to the list of sites that should not use a proxy, it works fine. I may be able to fix this problem myself by having the app edit the registry, but a more general solution may be possible. 3. One of my beta testers has 2 Win98 machines on which the app can't access the web. Browsers access the web successfully on these machines. She has other Win98 machines, on the same LAN, on which the app is able to access the web. (Breaking news... I just got a report from that tester that she discovered what was different about the 2 machines that didn't work. They were both running IE 5. When she upgraded them to IE 6, they worked. I wonder if this means that I should be shipping and installing the latest [url removed, login to view] with my app?) Currently the app does not initiate a dial-up connection when there is no connection. I would like it to do that as well. The app is written with Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0. I will provide full source code and Visual Studio project files to the winning bidder. I need this debugged ASAP. It should be pretty straightforward for a wininet expert. If necessary, I can communicate with my beta testers to get additional information or to have them test things for you.
