Hi Everybody,
We have been having some problem with file download. When we try to download pdf document using IE browser and choose to "Open from Current Location", it prompt again the same dialog. If we choose to "Open from Current Location" again, it prompts again with the same dialog. Now if we choose "Open from Current Location", it opening in the acrobat reader. Why IE prompting the dialog three times when we choose to open the file.
Has anybody faced the same problem? any suggestions???
Thank you very much in advance,
