In this post we will see how we can get rid of error “Your current settings do not allow file to be downloaded” in Windows server 2012. You will get this error whenever you try downloading a file in your server. For me it was one of the Azure Virtual Machine. Here I am going to share you a quick fix that you can do when you are facing this issue. I hope you will like this.
When I try that, I got an error as follows.
Steps to fix your current settings do not allow file to be downloaded
Step 1: Go to your Internet Options of your Internet Explorer
Step 2: Go to your Security tab -> Internet -> Custom level
Step 3: Go to Downloads and Enable it
Step 4: Click Yes and OK
Now if you try downloading again, you won’t get the error. Hope it helps.
