string url = "";
string DestinationPath ="C:/temp";

byte[] bytes=GetBytesFromUrl(url);
WriteBytesToFile(DestinationPath +"/"+filename, bytes);

static public byte[] GetBytesFromUrl(string url)
byte[] b;
HttpWebRequest myReq = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(url);
WebResponse myResp = myReq.GetResponse();

Stream stream = myResp.GetResponseStream();
//int i;
using (BinaryReader br = new BinaryReader(stream))
//i = (int)(stream.Length);
b = br.ReadBytes(500000);
return b;

static public void WriteBytesToFile(string fileName, byte[] content)
FileStream fs = new FileStream(fileName, FileMode.Create);
BinaryWriter w = new BinaryWriter(fs);

The model backing the 'MyDBContext' context has changed since the database was created.
