Hi Rick,

is there a setting for http downloading files from Web Connection? I can download .htm and .pdf files, but when I try .app files, I get an

404 - File or directory not found.

error. Can you help? Cheers, Rolf

it's not a Web COnnection issue - it's a Web Server issue. What server are you using?

Web Servers have a preset set of Mime types that it knows about and can download. Unknown file types/mime types are rejected. For IIS you can set the Mime mappings.

Here's an old blog post that talks about mime maps and how to set them (in the context of missing .woff and .woff2 extensions at the time):

FontAwesome Mime Types Configuration

You can use the same approach with .app and map it to application/octet-stream (which is unspecified binary code).

I use IIS and solved it with mime mappings as you described. Thank you!
