Hi

I want to allow users to download the installation files for my Excel Add-in
from my ASP.net website

I take it that I should store the setup files in a zipped folder in Resources

How do I get the user to download it? Perhaps behind a button click
What VB.net code if any would I use

Easiest way would be just to add a hyperlink to the file.  

Click <a href="Thelink.zip">here </a> to download the Add-In.

The browser can handle it from there.

You can also do a response.Write and write the file to the header.
