whenever I install windows or do clean ups on customer computers, I create a c:\calkins folder in which I put programs that don't come with installers, including wget, sha1sum, md5sum, unzip32, processexplorer, and hijackthis. This laptop is one I reinstalled Windows on for a local pawn shop, before I bought it myself. I decided to leave wget in that folder for the sake of consistency. I decided not to create a PATH variable entry to it, again for consistency, and on the off chance that malware would try shelling to wget, which I admit is pretty far fetched...
When you substitute the correct location for wget on your computer, is it still not creating the file? I give the file a specific name of "ip.htm" because qbasic didn't want to open the default name of "index.html".
