Downloading .EXE from ColdFusion Server
Posted on 2000-04-28
I have put a simple .html web page on a ColdFusion server.
On that web page (with NO ColdFusion tags) I have a link to a .exe file that
I want the user to be able to download.
When I run the page on my browser, the server nothing happens, the browser waits and waits, and the "Save As..." dialog never appears.
When I try to download .exe files from other web sites (with my browser), I do not have this problem.
When I run the .html page locally on my workstation, I'm able to download with no problem.
So the question is: Does the ColdFusion Server handle links to .exe files differently than expected, or do I have to contact my server's administrator to try and fix this?
