When I use the following code from the browser I get:

Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + Server.UrlEncode(fi.Name));

I receive the following error.

Access to the path '\\myserver\mydir\myfile.txt' is denied.

When I run visual studio the file downloads without a problem.

Any ideas how to resolve?
