Runtime Error - when browsing directory and clicking on .mdb file RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a virtual directory which points to a shared folder in a remote server.  I have enabled directory browsing for that virtual directory.

    When I click on any files like a .doc file or .xls file or .zip I get a prompt to save the file or open the file. But when I click a .mdb file I get a run time error.

    Runtime Error

    Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

    Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

    <!-- Web.Config Configuration File --> <configuration> <system.web> <customErrors mode="Off"/> </system.web> </configuration>
    I am not able to see what error is being generated. I dont have a web config for that virtual directory so I dont know how to see this error.

    I need to be able to download .mdb files.
