Code a very simple VB application

I need a very simple VB app.

Has to be VB 6.

NOT .net !

* The coded software will have no GUI at all, no tray icon, nothing.

* On software load-up it would check if a URL (.dat file) exists.

* IF exists -> run an external exe file with command line parameters.

* IF NOT -> do nothing.

* It should stay resident in memory and run this check every hour.

* Software should be able to handle HTTP error codes, so that if the file doesn't exist and a 404 NOT FOUND page loads up, it doesn't accidentally detect this as a "file exists" state. The same goes for all other error codes such as 403 forbidden, 500 internal server error etc...

* It is CRITICAL that the software REALLY detects if the file exists, and only then run the external EXE file.

* It should be light on memory usage.

* The code should be well commented, so I can change the URL and EXE file parameters easily.

* Should be XP and Win7 compatible with the minimal dependency files (none if possible)

Example:

Software loads up and checks if [url removed, login to view] exists

File exists

Run "[url removed, login to view] /p /s /t2"

A super easy micro project.

A medium level coder should be able to code this within 10-15 minutes tops.

I will only consider experienced coders with positive feedback.

Feedback will be left for freelancer only AFTER project is complete.

*** Milestones: Only one. 100% at project completion. ***

Thanks
