    Dumb browser query (aspx file)

    Would appreciate some advice. I'm trying to access the "Edexcel Examwizard Online" link from this page:

    examWizard - GCSE Mathematics Online

    I get a dialog box saying: "Do you want to open or save this file". Same on different PCs/browsers. Staff say this has been working up until now. Their tech support say it's working fine. What am I missing here?

    Their tech support need slap. Website is borked, you should not even be able to download raw ASP files, if there were any usernames or passwords for DB access in them they'd be in trouble! (there aren't any in this one...)

    Seems to work fine here (Win 7 IE8) O.o Not sure if it's fixed, or only broken to some people?

    GCSE from 2010* *|*Mathematics* | Edexcel right?

    (Thanks for the feedback...I've tried it in IE8, Firefox, Chrome, still getting the same problem. Starting to wonder if it might be somehow firewall-related or something...I'll try it outside the school network.)

    I'm still not convinced that it's not a website problem, even if it is letting some people on... it should never be possible to download ASP source like that, it's supposed to be converted by the web server before it is delivered outside, it can only be a problem there end...

    EDIT: there isn't any ASP code in there, it has been converted, and I'm being a moron I shall now leave this thread, dragging my dignity behind me...
