Download EXE

Posted: 07-17-2007, 03:51 PM
I am trying to download evaluation software (EXE) from Microsoft and the
download starts but disappears about half way through. I know this has to
do with the Attachment Execution Service which blocks these files. I know
that I need to click "Unblock" but I can't do that until it's downloaded.
How do I download this kind of file with Vista blocking EXE's? I have tried
turning on File Extensions and changing it to .exx but it still doesn't
work... anyone?

And I'm having the same problem.

All of a sudden when I download files with an .exe extension "Windows"
blocks it and sends it into hell or somewhere for my "protection".

Also, when I try to unzip a file with an exe file in it, it will block that
file but let the rest unzip.

It didn't do this before. It must have been one of the patches that enabled
this...

Please, someone out there must know the answer!

PLEASE help us and post a fix so that we can start using our computers and
downloads normally.

Thanks for any help and info.....

I know this problem has irritated many people, including myself.
would open Internet Explorer and try to download a file and it would g
through the motions and get to 100% then appear for 1 second in th
destination folder then, suddenly DISAPPEAR! WTF? I tried everything.
Uninstalled Anti-Virus, disabled Windows Defender, turned Window
Firewall off. NOTHING

Then I opened up the Network Sharing Center and noticed my Network wa
set to Public. I reset it to Private and then turned off the Fil
Sharing. I can now download files! Amazing! Just when I was ready t
dress in a turtle neck sweater and sit in Starbucks's and act al
snootiy with my brand new Mac. Thanks Microsoft for being so freakin
annoying

Security can be such a PITA.

Did you intend to make the internet a part of your private (more
trusted) network?
