(Visual Basic 6.0) REST Asynchronous Streaming Upload Simplified

This is example is simplified in that it calls FullRequestStreamAsync instead of making calls to SendReqStreamBodyAsync, ReadResponseHeader, and ReadRespBodyStr.

It demonstrates how to create and write to a stream that feeds an asynchronous upload to cloud storage. This particular example demonstrates an upload to the Azure Cloud Storage service. The same concepts apply to S3, Google Cloud, and Google Drive.
