SYMPTOMS

When you start a Microsoft SoftGrid-enabled application by clicking an .osd file on a Web site, the Web browser may unexpectedly display the .osd file as text.

CAUSE

This behavior may occur if the Web Server MIME types are not configured to enable .osd files.

MORE INFORMATION

To verify this configuration and to enable .osd files, follow these steps:
  1. On the SoftGrid Management Web Service server, open Administrative Tools, and then start IIS Manager.
  2. Expand Web Sites, and then expand Default Web Site.
  3. Right-click Content Virtual Directory, and then click Properties.
  4. Click the HTTP Headers tab, and then click MIME Types. If .osd is listed under Registered MIME types, .osd files are enabled.
  5. If .osd is not listed under Registered MIME types, click New.
  6. In the Extension field, type .osd.
  7. In the MIME type field, type application/softricity-osd.
  8. Click OK three times.
