     This is a re-make of the code I posted yesterday. Now you it consists of only one form who is able to receive and send files. You can use it to provide your app with internal filetransfer or even chats. Please visit for more! -------- Thats what I posted yesterday! " This code allows you to transfer files from one pc to another using winsock. Well it does not use only api declarations but it works. I comment it in english so i hope you can understand it because i'm german. I made that example because a lot of winsock transfer file toolkits are not precise enought. Some do not use send complete and some examples show you how your file become bigger and bigger after every transfer because they do not check the file size! I do not say that my one is perfect but much better than most of the others. For example I do not like the filesize check-routine... if you know a better way to fix that, please send me your ideas to The "FILEINFO" routine should also made in a better way... you should take another winsock to transfer fileinfos. I also included the transfered bytes per second in that sample! "

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
