Problem in downloading files

Hi

I am facing a strange problem in downloading files from the web.

CASE 1:
I have an ActiveX.dll file developed using Visual Basic 6.0 and uploaded on
a Linux Server. I am typing [http://somedomain.com/somefolder/filename.dll]
into the addressbar of the IE, IE is allowing me to download that file with a
save dialog box, this is working as per my requirement. but,

CASE 2:
I have a .dll file developed using VB.NET and uploaded on the same Linux
Server, When I am typing
[http://somedomain.com/somefolder/filename_VBDOTNET.dll] into the address bar
of the IE, I am getting an error message
"Just-In-Time Debugging"
An Exception 'System.NullReferenceException' has occurred in IEExe.exe
instead of being able to download that dll file.

Can anybody know the reason, why IE is not allowing me to download the.

regards,
Kajol

Hi there,

I am no expert on this matter, but I do know that the Microsoft .NET
framework handles certain requests done through your browser. For example, no
touch deployment works this way. You are actually able to launch remote .NET
applications using your browser. When you call these applications, your
browser will download the assemblies locally and run it. I suspect this is
what is happening with your DLL. the .NET Framework must be trying to "run"
your DLL.

Good luck!
