    How do I know that an exe file has been completely downloaded?

    My question is how do I know that an exe file has been COMPLETELY downloaded from the web's download page?
    Thanks!

    You probably don't as the download is handled by the users FTP client not their HTTP client and these are often separate programs.

    I have heard there is something you can do with ASP but this basically involves sending the file in little chunks and waiting for the next one to be requested.
