Delete after download - Download not working in IE

Hi all, I have a dataview with a Microflow-button that tries to download a document. Important background is that DeleteAfterDownload is set to true while uploading this file (in a java-action). My problem - Chrome and Firefox download my file correctly - Internet Explorer doesnt (tested with IE 7 and higher) How can I make it work in IE as well? The behavior in IE is like this - the Microflow button is clicked - after that, the information bar is displayed, showing: this message To help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for options... When I then "click here" and select "download file" I would expect that IE downloads my file. What actually happens is that I get redirected to the default homepage. The nasty thing is that because of the "DeleteAfterDownload" option, the user is not able to download it again. Anybody suggestions for this?

Too bad that deleteAfterDownload cannot be safely used, because we need that the fileDocument is deleted asap.

Now I suggested to change the flow:
- generate the fileDocument with my java-action + add an expire-datetime
- download the document, and only allow this if the datetime is not expired

Unfortunately downloading in IE causes problem on my machine (IE 7) at least.

What happens is that I press the "download microflow-button", I get the (previously mentioned) information-bar. When I click "download file" the Mendix-portal refreshes and sends me to my default homepage.

When I retry downloading, this keeps happening.

this topic points to some security settings in IE (this link), but I can't manipulate the system settings (are managed by my system administrator)

Is there a workaround?


I really recommend not to use DeleteAfterDownload, the download will always be reinitialized by IE (and other browsers as well) if blocked for a security message the first time.
