ASP - Wrong URL - Asked By srinivas gajavada on 18-Jun-01 02:46 PM

Response.AddHeader "Content-Disposition","attachment; filename=test.zip"
Response.ContentType = "application/zip"
Response.CacheControl = "public"

followed by streaming code....

When I run this code, instead of showing the TEST.ZIP filename in the download dialog box it shows the ASP filename itself. But finally it saves TEST.ZIP. 

i am using IE 5.01(SP1) on WIN 2K IIS 5.0
Can anyone help me on this ?

When I redirect directly to the zip file via URL, I'm automatically prompted to download.

Are you trying to do something different?

Here's what's in the following URL.  Run it...

http://www.eggheadcafe.com/test.asp


  <% response.redirect "/articles/20010418.zip" %>

 I only see the .zip dialog box.
not redirecting but streaming .. - Asked By srinivas gajavada on 18-Jun-01 05:06 PM
I am basically forcing the "File Download" dialog box for both known/unknown MIME types(doc,pdf,zip,tar etc) related to the Microsoft article 
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q260/5/19.asp
and streaming the data.

Response.AddHeader "Content-Disposition","attachment; filename=test.pdf" 
Response.ContentType = "application/pdf" 
Response.CacheControl = "public" 

and steaming code...

I'm sorry.  I've never needed to do this.  I read the sub article.  Are you sure your file complies with it's requirements for suitable content.
