This seems as good a place as any for this question. It has to do with an .ASHX handler.
I have written a generic file serving handler in asp.net/vb.net - it has been working great. I recently moved to a windows 7 box and am now debugging under IIS7, and this is where the problems occure.
Whenever I serve a file to either FireFox or Chrome (IE8 works fine) from IIS 7, the download will fail.
- In FireFox the error is "[some file name and path].part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read."
- In Chrome the error is "Error 330 (net::ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED): Unknown error."
- In IE8 it works fine
If I run the same code in IIS6, it works fine.
If I run the same code in the Visual Studio virtual web server, it works fine (on windows 7 or XP).
I am rather concerned about this as our production web server will soon be IIS7; which I'm starting to really love, and would hate to revert to IIS6 just because this won't work in IIS7.
