the issue was solved in IIS by removing "Extension" .resources mapping from
<site>/properties/virtual directory/configuration/mapping

It's not clear what the problem is here, but if you need to download the file, change the name to something like "file_20120608_154805_rAoCR_0.resources.txt" and tell people to strip the .txt portion off before they use it.  ".resources" is a reserved file type.

You need to set the MIME type for your IIS server to allow IIS to server different file type
depends on your IIS version just google IIS setting for MIME type ....
