ASP.NET File Download Feature

Hi All,

I need to know how do we implement a file download feature
in ASP.NET. As we see in the MSDN sites (say when we try to download the .NET
famework) , refer this URL

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

On click of a download button we get a pop up window which will ask the user
to either run or save the file . How is this implemented?

I have a requirement to either give the user an option to save or run a exe
located on a webserver.

I tried some thing like this :

<IFRAME SRC="\\ipaddress\shared\xyz.exe" title="Link">Link</IFRAME>

it works , but when i refer a URL of a webserver like :
http://mywebsite/xyz.exe , the program hangs.It times out most of the times.

I would want to implement the same feature as in MSDN sites , on click of a
button on a aspx page the user should get the run , save or cancel options
and the exe needs to be downloaded from the web server.Can some body help me
on this.

Thanks

Mahesha
