File download--Access denied. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Did not have this problem, before recent changes were made to Outlook.

    When I try to download a PDF file, it does not download. Browser goes to "Access Denied"

    I need a quick fix.

    Thank you

  • Hi Herb1234,

    can you give us more details what you are doing? Where do you try to download the file? What C# code did you write to do it? Or did you write the server part? How does Outlook fit into the picture? What did you test with which Browser and what is the exact error?

    On the server side might even be more logs available that might be useful.

    With kind regards,

  • I am emailed a file. When I click on download, the browser goes to "Access Denied." The file does not download.

    I do not write a "C" code. Previously, prior to Outlook update, I clicked on the file to download, and it downloaded.

    I am using google Chrome. Never had problems downloading, before the update.

  • Hello,

    I'd ask Google.

    You might also ask in the Microsoft Office Outlook Community Forums.

    As the Microsoft Community is on a different platform, we cannot move the question for you.
