    Hello again...

    Not sure what I did wrong...but I created a simple link to a file on my web server. Go to this page & check it out:

    http://www.moonjams.com/musiclinks1.htm

    In testing the page...when I right -click on the link & choose 'Save Target As'...I get a message that reads:

    Internet Explorer cannot download "name of file" from "name of website". Internet Explorer was not able to open this internet site.
    I used regular old a href=" coding...I even spelled out the URL prior to the forward slash/file name.

    What did I do wrong...is there another type of coding necessary for downloadable type files?

    Thanks,

    mark4man

    The file is not uploaded, or it is uploaded but to a different location.

    Your href link points to http://www.moonjams.com/CaseyJones_Test.cwp is that correct?

    Yes.

    & it IS there...I just checked.

    Thanks very much...maybe we can solve this. I'm sure I messed up the code, somehow (by using simple anchor tags). There is no MIME for that type of file...but I thought for sure that wouldn't matter...that the visitor could download ANY type of file, if the link coding was correct. I even used a target of "self"; & that didn't work.

    Is .cwp Roland's Cakewalk Format?

    I think it's the unrecognized file format that is causing this problem.

    You can experiment by simply putting the CWP file in a zipped file,
    named Casey_JonesTest.zip and try the same thing ....
    I'll bet it downloads just fine.

    No...it's Cakewalk SONAR's default Project file (CakeWalk Project).

    & I'll just bet that's the damn doggone solution...right there. Why didn't I think of that?

    Thanks, mlseim...
