        ' Send the 'fileWebRequest' and wait for response. 
        Dim myFileWebResponse As FileWebResponse = CType(myFileWebRequest.GetResponse(), FileWebResponse)
        ' Process the response here

        ' The method call to release resources of response object.
        myFileWebResponse.Close()
        Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Response Stream successfully closed")
