Avoiding the "File download" dialog when using the WebBrowser control to navigating to an excel file (C#/Windows Forms)

P: n/a

My Windows Forms application uses the WebBrowser control to
open an Excel file since OLE objects are gone in .Net. The application
is actualy a clone of the one found in the MS Knowledge Base Article
"How to Use the WebBrowser Control to Open Office Documents with
Visual C# .NET" which can be found here:;EN-US;304662

The application does what it's supposed to (ie Loads embeded Excel
and opens the file), the problem is that prior to that it displays a
"File Download" dialog. For personal use i could simply uncheck the
"always ask before opening this type of file" checkbox but for the
the release this is not an option.

I would like to know if it is possible to avoid the "File Download"

Thanks in advance for any help.
