I have an MFC application. I would like to download files (pictures, video, mp3) from online locations to a specific folder on the local computer, without any user promptings. Some of this online locations might be passworded.

I would prefer using HTTP over FTP access but still open to suggestions. I know there is SOAP, CAtlHTTP (or something). I would just like advise on the best and fastest option to get the files and have them downloaded to a hardcoded location.

Thanks in advance.
