I am having an issue with downloading by HttpCli.

I am doing a really simple synchronous download of a binary file:

  HTTP.RcvdStream := TFileStream.Create(UpdateFileName,fmCreate);
  HTTP.URL := RemoteFileName;

The file appears to be retrieved fine, and the resultant file size matches
the one on the web, but it is an executable file and does not run afterward.
So I am assuming it is being corrupted in some way. Is there a special
mode/property for downloading binary files? I did not see any mention of it
in the FAQ.

I am converting a small indy application that used that HTTP component into
ICS. I prefer to retrieve the web file by HTTP, but I can convert to ICS FTP
is absolutely necessary.
