It allows to download; I just tried.

Just hyperlink to the above down-able ULRs using anchor tag in html. I think may it solve your problem. You are using ASP.NET (web based application).
Why you need extra stuff like "WebClient"??
Sanjay K. Gupta 19-Nov-12 23:46pm
Yes it allows to download. Me too tried.

Can you explain why you need to do it this way? Is there a reason you cannot create hyperlinks to the files?
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 20-Nov-12 14:37pm
It does not matter at all what to download. Are you asking about another way? That's HttpWebRequest -- more general way than highly simplified WebClient. But this is not your problem... I cannot reproduce it.
shailendra194878 21-Nov-12 2:58am
that's not the problem. When ever i am trying i am getting mention error
ryanb31 21-Nov-12 7:30am
You get that error even if you put those URLs into your browser?
shailendra194878 27-Nov-12 23:18pm
You are write sir but i am getting error.

The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.

Then it must be an issue with your settings or your proxy server. Not a code issue.
