(VB.NET UWP/WinRT) Refresh Access Token on 401 Unauthorized and Retry

Demonstrates how to handle an expired access token error, refresh the token, and retry the request. (In this case, the request is to download an object from Google Cloud Storage.)

' This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
' See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

' This example uses a previously obtained access token having permission for the 
' scope "https://www.googleapis.com/auth/cloud-platform"

' the service account access token was saved to a text file.  This example fetches the access token from the file..
