Why do I get error message ‘Internet Explorer cannot download MyPage.aspx from MyWebSite.com …’?

Platform: ASP.NET| Category: Deployment Issues

This happens for example, when you try to export data to excel from a datagrid.

The problem occurs if the server is using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and has added one or both of the following HTTP headers to the response message:


Pragma: no-cache
Cache-control: no-cache,max-age=0,must-revalidate

For more details refer PRB: Internet Explorer Is Unable to Open Office Documents from an SSL Web Site
