Question: Invoking custom file type (file associated with custom app)

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by VB Programmer, Nov 3, 2003.

  1. I have a custom file type ("PWA" extension.) It's just a text file with
    some text created by the web server.

    When my web page redirects to one of these pages I want to auto launch a
    local app. (This action similar to PDF files. When I access a PDF file in
    IE it opens it automatically in Acrobat.)

    I created the file association manually, but when I response.redirect to the
    PWA file it displays it in IE, rather than open it using my custom app.

    Any ideas?

    You must add a corresponding mime type to the file extension in IIS. For
    further details the IIS newsgroup is just the right place to query.
