Dear Senthil,

if you type " http://localhost/MYDAPP/SAMPLE.TXT" in your browser are you able to download the file?

Dear Senthil,

Honestly, I just tried to download a file over my network and works fine.

In order to to do an extra verification, have you tried to replace your file URL with something else available over internet?

Hello guys,

I have the following problem while downloading files from our server. In the top of the script it works perfectly,
but when I want to download the files within my script (where the installfiles commands are) it fails.

Do you have an idea?

Code: Select all

[DEFINE WEB MEDIA MIK.arjuna]
   Get Component MIK.arjuna Selection State into Variable SELECTED
   if Variable SELECTED Equals TRUE
     Download File http://www.mik-support.de/setups/arjuna/files/MikArjuna2501.7z into $TARGETDIRLOC$\MikArjuna2501.7z (get result into variable downloadstate)
     Extract .... into TARGETDIR
   end
Kind regards

Dear Heiko,

Without having your complete project it is not easy to give you a correct answer ... but this could be caused because your Downolad command it is located within a WEB MEDIA BLOCK definition.

Please try to verify what happens moving the Download command just before that WEB MEDIA BLOCK and anyway, outside of any other existing WEB MEDIA BLOCK.

I can confirm that it does not work within web media block, but outside of that.
Thanks

Glad you have it solved too. I'll mention this and it may save a headache or two later. depending on the server,.7ZIP is not always defined as a MIME type, so when I've had problems with it that's one of the first things check.
