    exe files in asp

    Hi folks,

    Just a quick question - I have a asp script with a Response.Redirect at the end of it:

    <% Response.Redirect("http://websitename.com/download.asp?casino=softwarename.exe") %>

    it works fine - but in XP, probably because of security settings, the page pops up and closes and the download does not start. Anyone have any ideas of a way around this?

    Thanks

    I sure hope not.
    There's a reason for it.

    Why don't you let people download it instead (stream it so they can choose run/save)?

    If this post contains any code, I may or may not have tested it. It's probably just example code, so no getting knickers in a bunch over a typo, OK? If it doesn't have basic error checking in it, such as object detection or checking if objects are null before using them, put that in there. I'm giving examples, not typing up your whole app for you. You run code at your own risk.

    Or perhaps store the download in a .zip file which can be easily linked to...
