downloading multiple files

Hello,

Is it possible to download multiple files? Right now I am using the
following code in a loop, but I can only save one file - the first one.

Response.Clear();
Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment;
filename=" + fileName);
Response.AddHeader("Content-Length", "10");
Response.ContentType = "application/octet-stream";
Response.WriteFile(paths);
//Response.End();

Is there something I am doing wrong? Is there another way of
implementing this that I am unaware of? I am new to this, so any help
will be appreciated.

Btw, I did read in a post that zipping the files into one file would
work, but I cannot implement it this way.

Thanks!
Fatima

No, its not supported by the browser. The most common approach is to zip the
files into one file.

Is there any other way of doing this? Without zipping the files?

Not natively - you'll need something like a Java applet for this.

I use this one a lot: http://www.utechsoft.com/products/udownload/
