Are you going to use AutoHotkey for your script?

Here are two scripts for your request.

Read the Help file for each command and try to understand what the commands are doing. I couldn't write a script without looking in the help file. :)

Something you can try: If the download is OK, check the size of the downloaded file. If smaller than let's say 50 kb, read the file in a variable and check for a "not found" string. (If the file is not found, AHK will save the 404 error page.)


msgbox, 36, This box has a title, This is a message
IfMsgBox, Yes
run,http://www.autohotkey.com/download/AutoHotkeyInstall.exe


or

msgbox, 36, This box has a title, This is a message
IfMsgBox, Yes
{
ToolTip, Downloading...
UrlDownloadToFile, http://www.autohotkey.com/download/AutoHotkeyInstall.exe, %A_scriptdir%\AutoHotkeyInstall.exe
Tooltip
if errorlevel = 1
msgbox, 16, This is another title, Download failed
else
msgbox, 64, This is another title, Download OK`n`(but can't be 100`% sure`, check AHK help file`)
}
