VB6 Async Download

Downloading files in VB6 usually entails either using the Synchronous UrlDownloadToFile Api (which completely hangs your interface until the download completes), some messy code and an external control, or a mountain of error prone code and the winsock control.

Turns out MS has a very slick way of doing async downloads already built in and requiring no external Api or controls! How could this be hidden from me for so long?! This is a thing of beauty.

Read it and weep for joy. I know i did.
