The requested site is either unavaliable or cannot be found. Please try again later. --------------- But i can able to download the same file in http mode Is there any browser setting that i have to change ? how to solve this problem.
Internet Explorer 5.0 is not configured properly to download files in secure mode (https). You will see the following message: Internet Explorer cannot download my_file.xls from www.my_site.com. The file could not be written to the cache. To configure Internet Explorer properly, you need to set the Do not save encrypted pages to disk option. Here is how you do it:
Go to the Internet Explorer Tools menu Select Internet Options... Select Advanced tab Scroll down to Security Check the Do not save encrypted pages to disk option Note that this problem only occurs with files which require an external viewer, e.g. Word, Excel, or PDF. It does not occur with images and html that are viewed with Internet Explorer itself. Regards jagan
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
