Has anybody gotten this VI to work? I have tried under latest version of IE and Firefox.
It copies the file but I never get the prompt to Save the file ... The Content-Disposition from HTTP forums say this should work.
I have code snippet in HTML file I wrote that verifies the browser prompts for file to save.

I just tested the VI in Chrome and IE and it seemed to work fine.
Is your browser setup to save to a default location? My Chrome is so the file was simply downloaded to my default downloads directory, without a prompt. Is this what you are seeing?
Have a great day,

If you load the web service URL directly in your web browser (not in UI Builder with the hyperlink control), do you get the download prompt then?
I wonder if it could be a popup blocking issue or something like that.

Great idea ... It worked by directly loading the URL that is passed into the GET function in the vix file called from the Web UI in both Firefox and IE
Where could the issue be, I am very confused

I tried it in Firefox in UI Builder and got the download prompt too. I have Block pop-windows on in Firefox but I still had no issues.
In your hyperlink control's properties, is TargetName still "_blank"?

In the Properties window on the right side of your screen, you should find TargetName in the Behavior section.
If you don't see it there, you can hit the sideways Properties button, or bring it back if closed from View ribbon tab > View Panes > Properties.
It sounds like you haven't changed TargetName though, so that probably isn't the problem. Can't think of other issues that would cause this though.

I'm attaching an editor screenshot for configuring the hyperlink - can you confirm that your control has all of the red boxed properties set up correctly? Another possibility is that you put the URL in the "Content" (link text) rather than the Target URL, then nothing would happen when you clicked it.
