http AWS S3 Vb6

Mar 21 '16 at 20:17

Hi I downloaded your demo for vb6

I am specifically looking to use it with amazon S3 The demo kicks back error 403 forbidden.

I am using the the proper keys. Is the DLL upto date and still supported for AWS or am I doing something wrong?

If I can get the demo to work then I want to buy this - providing it works of course. I using it as a reference, if I try and load it as a control it loads, however the controls are not rendered properly. They come up as black squares.

If its no longer supported for vb6, is it for .net? I don't really want to use .net - but I will if I have to.
