Windows Server 2003 files don't download correctly.

Windows 2003 Server does not correctly serve up files which do not have a MIME type configured.

To do this in IIS:

  • Open the web site properties.
  • Click advanced.
  • Click MIME types.
  • Add in the extension and the type.

This should fix any odd download issues.
