Never heard of "preflight cache".  You can clear the normal cache (which is the Temporary Files) in Internet Options on the General tab under Browser History.

Preflight cache is a special cache for saving preflight requests.  See http://www.w3.org/TR/cors/

According to this page, it is only related to Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS).  It also says it should be cleared when your regular cache is cleared and that the normal expiration is 30 minutes.

Yes I'm doing preflight requests for CORS.  And the expiration we set was 20 days (it's an option that you can return along with the allow-origin flag).  The site says it "may" clear when you clear your browser cache.  And that's for chrome.  In IE, when you clear cache, you're given very specific items that get cleared and preflight results are not one of them..  It seems that this is definitely not cleared by IE when you clear normal cache...

Just clearing the browser cache is confirmed to work.  My problem was not because of the preflight cache.  It was just a red herring.
