    Hi, I have an application built in visual fox pro9 SP1 and using SQL server
    2008 as the back end. I have set up my application in XP operating system
    with IE 8 and it works fine.



    Now I have installed windows 7 in my PC and set up the above application
    accordingly.



    When downloading data from the server via virtual path into another (local)
    location. I'm getting an ERROR message saying that "Connection with the
    server was reset." When further investigation I have notice that the size of
    the file which I'm downloading exceeds 2 Kb this error occurs and it doesn't
    have any impact of the file type. Can anybody help me on this

    Just a couple thoughts. If it runs fine on XP then you might try the compatibility trick. Right click on the applications executable and choose properties and under the compatibility tab set it to pretend XP and check the box near the bottom to run as administrator and see if that helps.
    Also you may try it with the Windows 7 firewall off for testing as well as uninstall any third party firewalls or AntiVirus Internet Security Suites that may have a firewall applet built in and see if that helps.

    Thanks for ur reply.. i tried this in my end and i'm afraid it doesn't solve my problem.It's giving the same error message. i suspect that there will be some thing goes wrong with IE8. Is there any buffering settings which is not allowing to download more than 2KB ?

    You said in your first post that you had tested the app with XP running IE8 so
    1. Check the IE8 settings on an XP machine under advanced did you have to tweak anything under security on the Advanced Tab or did it just run automagically?
    2. Check your local event logs Widows Logs->Application and Application and Services Logs->Internet Explorer see if there is anything there that might give you a clue.
    3. Check or have that DBA check the event logs on the server hosting the SQL database for anything specific to your connection.
