I'm trying to allow people to download exe files from my site.
I'm using the code below:

<cfheader name="Content-Disposition" value="attachment; filename=#url.id#;" > 

<cfcontent type="application/unknown" file="software\#URLDecode(url.id)#" deletefile="No" >

It works fine in IE6 but dose not work in NN6 (says there is no function named URLDecode)

Can anyone help..

Thanks

Hi there,

i use the following code

the only diff u would notice is that i initialise the variable before using it in CFCONTENT.

ie CFSET SPATH = "software\#URLDecode(url.id)#"

---------------------------------------------------

<!--- file_to_be_download.cfm - Name of file to be downloaded. --->    
     <CFHEADER NAME="content-disposition" VALUE="attachment; filename=#SFILENAME#">
     
     <!--- get teh physical [c:\asdas\asda\asdas.cfm] path for the file to be downloaded. --->
     <CFCONTENT TYPE="application/octet-stream" FILE="#SPATH#" DELETEFILE="FALSE" RESET="TRUE">

------------------------------------------------------

see if this helps
let me know

K'Rgds

Still dose not work (with NN at least)
here is my code and let me know if I'm doing something wrong


<CFSET SPATH = "d:\mysite\download\software\#URLDecode(url.id)#">

---------------------------------------------------

<!--- file_to_be_download.cfm - Name of file to be downloaded. --->    
    <CFHEADER NAME="content-disposition" VALUE="attachment; filename=#url.id#">
   
    <!--- get teh physical [c:\asdas\asda\asdas.cfm] path for the file to be downloaded. --->
    <CFCONTENT TYPE="application/octet-stream" FILE="#SPATH#" DELETEFILE="FALSE" RESET="TRUE">
