Hi Eric,

Firstly, many thanks for your help on this.

I've done as you ask and the result, unfortunately, is the same.

This is the adapted code:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Download test</title>

$fileName = "wemmicks.pdf"; //the name of the file, example: yourfile.pdf
$path = "" . $fileName; //the file system path to the file, example: C:\\Inetpub\\wwwroot\\

header('Content-Type: application/octet-stream');
header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="' . $fileName . '"');

//these next four lines are not in the DFP code
header('Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary');
header('Expires: 0');
header('Cache-Control: must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0');
header('Pragma: public');
//down to here

header("Content-length: ".filesize($path));

//these next two lines are not in the DFP code also
// to here
