Office 2007 MIME types in IIS

Posted on 2008-06-19
Last Modified: 2011-10-03
I registered Office2007 MIME types in IIS(5) but I still have a handful of IE6/7 clients that are prompted to save the file as a zip when downloading docx, xlsx, etc..  Any idea what needs to be changed in the client's browser - possibly a plug-in or something?

what MIME tyhpes did you set them to?  Maybe those clients do not have the office 2007 extensions installed.

I only had one client that this wasn't working for but it is now working for him.  I think all he needed to do was reboot - not sure but he says its working now.

perhaps the office update had been downloaded over wsus and needed that reboot to make it work?
