I have an interesting situation that has suddenly become urgent as I have a customer who is about to take his website away unless I can fix this issue.
Server: Windows 2003 installed with all updates including all .NET updates
Web: IIS 6
There are a large number of websites on this server, all working fine. However, several of them have .exe files resident in various folders and have been put there by our customer because they want people to be able to download or run them by clicking a link on the website.
Of all websites that contain downloadable files, only one is working and that is a website designed only in HTML. The site in particular where I'm trying to help my customer is coded with .NET 4 in mind. The .exe file is a valid file and is in the right place but, if one clicks on the link to the file, instead of getting a prompt which says "Do you want to Save or Run this file?" the web user gets a 404 Page not found error.
Has anyone come across this before? Would certainly appreciate the help getting it sorted.
