Hi folks

And please forgive my naivety. I have a website at http://www.RecordLink.IT which is running fine but for one problem. The site is used to support software sales which we distribute as .msi files via download links eg;

<p><a href="uploads/docs/RECORDLINKwriter_Manager_v1-5-1-0.msi">

In Edge and Chrome there is no problem but when trying to download this .msi file when running on Internet Explorer an error appears. Any pointers would be very gratefully received.

Cheers

Tim

For completeness here's the start of the error message which goes on for several thousand words and isnt helpful;

I think you should make sure apache returns a proper mime-type header for .msi downloads.

Check this (if you can use .htaccess):

https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/httpd/ ... mime.types
