(Visual Basic 6.0) Azure File Service: Upload Large File

Sample code to upload a large file to a directory in a share in the Azure File Service. A file is uploaded by first creating the file in the Azure share and then writing ranges of bytes to the file. Azure imposes a 4MB limit for each PUT to write a range. Files larger than 4MB need to be uploaded by making multiple "Put Range" calls. This example uploads a large file requiring multiple "Put Range" calls.

'  This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.

'  Note: The application does not need to explicitly set the following

'  Send a PUT request to create the file (or replace the file if it already exists).
'  This will initialize the file in the Azure file storage.  To upload content, we'll need
'  to do the "Put Range" operation one or more times.
