Windows 7 IE 8 file download converts spaces to underscores RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Friends,

    I have a Windows 7 & IE 8 environment, on which i used to download some files from a web application. But while downloading IE8 converts spaces in filename to underscores. This causes issue with my process. Similiar issue i faced on a Windows XP & IE7 machine, but there i got one Microsoft hotfix for that issue and it got fixed. But on Windows 7 - IE8 Environment i was unable to find any hotfix. Kindly help. Thanks in advance.

  • The hotfix should be included in IE8. This kind of issue only occurs with several websites. You may need to wait for the websites to upgrade their engines.

  • Hi,

    I'm with App Support for a website where users of IE 8 have reported this problem. What does it mean for a website to upgrade its 'engine'?

    Thanks,

    Joe
