Allowing ASP.NET access to local file system - within IE browser
Posted on 2008-10-16
I want to be able to have my client ASP.NET session autodownload a file (word doc) from the server, save it to the local hard disk and then invoke Word (which I know is on hte local PC) to display the file.
Is this possible within ASP.NET/IE?
What security levels do I need to setup for IE on the client workstations?
The situation is that we are exploring the redevelopment of our customer mgt system from a locally installed exe to ASP.NET. But we must be able to setup the ASP.NET to bypass the usual prompts ("do you trust this site" etc) to make the standard functions we have run without intervention.
Note: this will initially be on a intranet, but I would like to be able to expose it to the www as well (after appropriate login accdess of course) if that makes any difference.
