I'm not sure this is going to make sense to anyone, but here goes.

So I write programs in Visual Basic 6 to speed along our employees interaction with websites. Basically the problem at hand is that the user is trying to upload a photo.

For some reason, the webbrowser control in VB6 does not get along with Aurigma.

When I click the file the screen looks like this:

UserPostedImage

And then after I press upload it looks like it uploads all the bytes but never actually finishes. It looks like this:

UserPostedImage

Any ideas?

Well, to tell the truth we never tried to test it with a web browser control built into a desktop application. However it is probably, the issue is not related to the this unusual environment. As far as I know, Flash uploader won't understand that the upload is complete unless the browser returns some response. So on the server side, you should just add a line in the end of the upload code:

Response.Write("The end");

or its equivalent (e.g. use echo for PHP, etc).

Hope this helps.

Problem is, I don't have the ability to change the code on the server.

Well, but it also won't work even without VB6 app, in a regular browser. It will happen when Flash-based uploader is loaded, in particular in IE9 and Safari. So the website developers should be interested to do it.

But it works fine in IE11. It seems to me that if it works in IE, it should work in the webbrowser control.

In IE11 it loads HTML5-based uploader which does not have this problem. On your screenshot, Flash-based uploader is used. It looks like when you insert the webbrowser control, it works in IE9-compatibility mode. If you manage to use it as IE10 or IE11, it should solve the problem.

It looks like you can choose the IE compatibility mode by prepending a special meta tag to the head of the HTML code ("edge" means "use the latest possible IE version", you can use 10 or 11 instead):

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />

Hope this helps.

OK. I don't have access to change the HTML but I tried the registry key and it didn't work. I'll keep playing with it and see if anything comes of it.

Well, I believe you receive the HMTL code as a string before you feed it to the webbrowser control, correct? If so, you can modify this string and add this tag there. You should insert it in the very beginning of the <head> tag, so there is even no need for heavy parsing. It should be quite easy.

When I navigate using a webbrowser control I issue:

WebBrowser1.navigate("www.somewhere.com")
