Word template extension problem

smitty62 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I put a word template document (*.dotx) out on the web server, but unlike pdf's or doc's I'm getting an error msg of non found.  The path and file name are correct, but it's almost like it's not recognizing the extension.  This is the first dotx document I put on the website for people to download.  

I check through the properties of both IIS and the physical file folder, and everything looks Okay.  "Documents (for any file type)" is selected.  Is there something I'm missing here?  Is there somewhere else I need to add this file type to in order for the server to work with it?
