Not able to download files from IIS site or application folders which are set to directory browsing.

by XDK 31. October 2014 06:33

Exceptions:

  • The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable
  • Unable to download file from server
  • unable to open this internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later

By default, IIS blocks some file extentions. You can see the blocked file extensions in "Request Filtering" --> "File Name Extensions" tab.  

Solution:

  • Open IIS manager (cmd --> inetmgr)
  • Click on the folder or application site
  • Double click on "Request Filtering"

  • Select "File Name Extensions" tab
  • Select the file extension and click on remove.

If you still have the issue with some other extensions, then add the file extensions to "MIME Type" as below.

Installing Visual Studio 2012 and then installing Visual Studio 2010 causes unreliable results for Office Integration add-ins

by XDK 1. July 2013 11:10

Explanation

If you install Visual Studio 2012 and then install Visual Studio 2010, and then you open Office to use an Office Integration add-in, Office displays two Team ribbons. Both ribbons are unreliable and may cause worksheets to become corrupted.

Workaround

Disable the Visual Studio 2010 version of the add-in, as follows:

  1. On the menu bar in Office, choose File, Options.
  2. In the Options dialog box, select Add-Ins.
  3. In the Manage box, select COM Add-ins and then choose the Go button.
  4. In the list of add-ins, clear the check box for the Visual Studio 2010 version of the add-in and then choose the OK button. (To determine the version of an add-in, select it and then read its location at the bottom of the Options dialog box. The location for a Visual Studio 2010 add-in is "Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0".)
