1. I open a website built using ASP.Net in a Windows Server 2003.
2. Try to click a link which look like this http://website/virtual/cab/filename.exe.
3. I got this error message:
"CGI Timeout
The specified CGI application exceeded the allowed time for processing. The server has deleted the process."

I've tried this on other server, it is able to download the .exe file, and very fast.  I've increase the CGI Timeout period from 300 to 600 using IIS 6.0 Resource Kit Tools.

Are there any other setting that i can do on the server to avoid timeout ?
