    Thanks for the responses.  The download dialog appears, but stops at "Getting File Information..." and then an error comes up a few seconds later saying that it can't retrieve it from the server. The file I have been working with most is a pps... view reply

    Sorry, I realized mine is the different one.  We used the river dashboard mod to post updates on the dashboard. That probably is you're login page.  Where does it normally go after logging in?  I have to get going.  But I'll... view reply

    Do you have the other plugin disabled?   I've had this problem before.  It happens when gatekeeper is trying to redirect you to login, but login runs gatekeeper again.  In my case, the login page is a separate page from the... view reply

    • I assume the browser doesn't prompt you to download and just displays the binary data?  This is usually a problem with headers, but it looks like the file mod in 1.7 is sending out the correct ones.  As far as I know, IE only needs the Content-Disposition header to force a download...this may have changed.  What type of file is it?

      The file I have been working with most is a pps (power point show) file, but I have tried others too (like doc).  I'll take a look at the files plugin and see what I can find out.

    • Hrm....that's a different problem than what @mick is describing then.  I'll be interested to see what you find out!
