HI all,

Actually I have implemented online credit card processing.

I need to allow the users to download the files for which they have paid for.

I list all the files that need to be downloaded.
I use ADODB Stream object to download the file.

But the problem ima facing is:
When the user clicks the first download link.The save dialog box pops up and the user can save the file..

While the first download is in process the user clicks the second download link,the second file dioesn't start download until the first one is over.

I need to have a solution so that user can click each link so that the save as dialog box comes for all the links the user has clicked simultaneously

It sounds like the link is giving the download the same 'id', so it has to wait for that 'id' to become free before it will change it to something else.  If you could assign a different window id to each download prompt, that might solve the problem.

the actual problem is that Internet Explorer limits the downloads to 2 per server.. the only fix is a registry key on the client side... but might cause your server to become instable if they try and download a bunch of files at once...
