Workaround
To work around this issue, disable the Always ask before opening this type of file option for the affected file type (for example, *.sap or *.ica). To do this, right-click the file in the download manager of Internet Explorer 9, and then click to clear the Always ask before opening this type of file option. This setting creates a registry entry under the following registry subkey:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\AttachmentExecute\{0002DF01-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}
The registry entry has the ProgID of the file type that you select. For example, the following values are for *.sap and *.ica files:
"SAPGui.Shortcut.File"=hex(0):"Citrix.ICAClient.2.7"=hex(0):
More information
To determine the ProgID for a registered file type, at a command prompt, run the following command:  
assoc <extension>
For example, run the following command:
assoc .sap
You see the following result:
.sap=SAPGui.Shortcut.File
