I'm trying to download a file from a website with an .asp extension.
It is supposed to be some form I need to fill out and send off.
I get an error message as soon as it tries to download it.

'File cannot be downloaded. File cannot be writen to cache'

Anyone has any idea how to solve this? Is this a browser setting or could the problem be at that website?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

What sort of computer and operating system are you using, the XP machine? An .asp is a type of webpage, an active server page, and it should open like any other page, with a form or a file to open or download, as the case may be.

I'm using XP Pro SP2 on my laptop PIII/1Ghz/512mb.
Using Explorer 6.0 but have also tried Firefox. Firefox doesn't seem to load the webpage properly as some links are inactive after loading.
Is there some sort of plug-in I should look for or install.

You shouldn't need any plugins, Microsoft developed .asp so Windows should be able to handle it. Have you tried other sites with forms and .asp pages? Just look for some pages where you have to sign up for something with an .asp extension. I would try that before making any changes to your system.
