My server doesn't allow download of .exe files

Created 2001-04-04


After setting up my server and configuring web pages, it will not allow the download of .exe files from the server via http connection. Is there a setting that has to be set before IIS5 allows download of .exe files? How do I configure the server to allow download of these .exe files?


Check to make sure you do not have the Execute option selected on the particular folder in the MMC. You normally only need to have the Scripts option setup. This is on the home directory tab for the website/or folder.
