    Remote server is running my .exe rather than allowing it to be downloaded!

    Hello,

    I just built my first program in C#, which I'm excited about. I want to offer it for a download on my site. When I click the link to MyApp.exe in Firefox, it downloads just fine, but when I click the link in Internet Explorer, it doesn't open the download dialog box. Rather, it seems to actually run the program on the remote server. Besides moving the program to a zip file, what can I do to make sure that Internet Explorer users can't run the program on the remote server, but can only download it?

    Thank you,
    TomJones

    I had the same problem, pack the exe in a .zip file if you are trying to distribute it.
