We have a web based software product that sits on IIS and allows for documents to be opened from the website.
This includes links to project files (.mpp). The issue we have with one of our customer when they click on the link to open (download) the .mpp file it attempts to open inside of the browser window. This opens for some users, but others are presented with a blank screen (all have Project 2010 installed). So issue one is that the file are not always displayed on the end users screen.
The second issue is that by open from within IE it creates a ready only view whereby the customer wants the link to open in full MS Project so they can update the file.
So the main question is there anyway to force the file to open in full MS project either by setting a mime type or similar on the IIS server or a setting on the clients PC?
