In Revit City, or anywhere, if I click on a file to download it, it automatically opens it, rather than getting the download box with the option to save it.  The issue is, I have 2009, and 2010, and if I need to download a file for 2009, it is automatically opening it up in 2010.  I want to change whatever setting is in IE or where ever to ask me what I want to do.  Does anyone know where that option is?

Running XP with IE8.

Thanks

Try this:

 

  • Click on Tools (in the IE menu)
  • Select Internet Options
  • Click on the Security tab
  • Click on the Custom Level button
  • Scroll down to Downloads: Automatic prompting for file downloads
  • Click on Enable
  • Click OK

WWHUB - I try that, but its too fast for me to cancel.  It opens anyway.

 

erland73 - I did as you say, thought it would work, but it did not.  I know at one point it did work, but it was always asking a question, and when I finally said yes to it, it does this, and I dont know how to stop it.

 

Any other ideas?  I restarted IE, and when that didnt work after changing the setting, I restarted Windows.  Alas, no.
