Dear Friends,

I'm trying to write a file download method in Struts (v1.1) action. I need to download a plain text file but with different extension (For example: test.reg) Following is the code snippet:

As soon as i click the download button, the above method is called and 'Open/Save/Cancel' pop-up is displayed. When i click 'Open', the IE browser displays all the contents properly in the new window. But if i click save i'm getting an error like this : "Internet Explorer cannot download testAction.do from localhost."
I'm able to download the file in Chrome browser but not able to download it in Internet Explorer v8. I cant find any exception stack traces in any logs.

Kindly provide your help in resolving the issue.

Thanks,
Vijay
