Ok, you’ve just installed Windows Server 2012, and now want to add a few non MS programs to it to make like a little easier so you open IE and browse to a website, click download and you get the error message “Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded“.
Click the cog in the top right corner of the browser and select Internet Options.
Select the Security tab, and click the Internet zone.
Click Custom level, and then scroll down to Downloads and select Enable.
Click OK and Yes to confirm you want to make the change for the Internet Zone.
Click OK to close the Internet Options.
Downloads are now enabled.
