Download link can not auto direct mirror and download in IE

Reported by: openpr Owned by: ctsai
Private: no


I have created a project named OpenPR http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/openpr in SF. And this project's websitehttp://www.openpr.org.cn is in another independence server.I hope users can visit that webpage and get project with the download link, for examplehttps://sourceforge.net/projects/openpr/files/package%20for%20scilab/OpenPR-0.0.2.zip/download.The download process is successful in firefox, but failed in IE. It shows "Your download will start shortly..." page, but the download never starts until use the direct link. So how does this problem solve or is there any download code to inframe in HTML page?
PS:If in the project file brower in SFhttps://sourceforge.net/projects/openpr/files/,there is no problem.

Thank you!

This has recently been brought up with the engineering team and they have indicated that this is due to a security restriction in IE. In order for the download to autostart in IE, the link has to be clicked on from the project summary or the files page.
