Is there a specific firewall that we are having problems with? 

I have only run setup.exe from behind a firewall that is why I coded it to
use wininet.  That way it would use the same mechanism IE does to go through
the firewall. I did this for somewhat selfish reasons, our #(*&^ proxy at
work ONLY works with IE and wininet compatible software.

This leads me to a possible source of difficulty I hadn't considered.  If
the user does not have IE 4 or higher properly configured to access the
Internet through their firewall, setup will not be able to use the
predefined information in wininet to download the source.  I should have
realized this earlier and for that I apologize.  Now to come up with a
working solution for this situation. Hmmm. I will have to look into this.

BTW, the firewalls I am going through are MS-Proxy Server and the ipchains
based Edge Fireplug.
