ISAPI - unload a file

Hi,

My problem is pretty simple. I have Microsoft's IIS. I want users to click on a link in their browser, and as a result I want them to load a file using HTTP server (not FTP!). ISAPI can be used. I read a very basic chapter on ISAPI. All the samples there were html forms/ ISAPI filter.  

Thanks
Rita

That's easy. Simply generate the HTML code like the following.

<a href="/files/file1.zip">Download File1.ZIP</a>

On the server side, all you have to do is to put the file into the directory.

Do you have some code you could post or you are trying to start from scratch?

You do not need to provide any code, just put the binary files in the appropriate directory ( give it read / (not script or execute) access ).  This is all you need to set up on the webserver.

Actually its not, and it did not address the issue at hand OR solve the problem.  This should have been made clear by the big red REJECTED ANSWER notice.
