I need to download ".bat" file on click of an image.
The code is :

With this code, the file content are displayed in the new window. No download/save window is shown.
I tried doing the same with the help of tag. but the output is same.
Can any one help me on that.

(If I replace .bat file with .zip file it shows me the Save window, and the zip file can be downloaded);
