How do I write a download link that forced download in Internet Explorer?

I have this link and it works perfect in Chrome, Safari and Firefox bit in IE it opens the file.

<a href="/files/CTC.vpd" download="CTC.vpd">Ladda ned uppdatering här (för Internet Explorer högerklicka och välj spara mål som)</a>

Anyone knows?

You'll have to configure the server to send .vpd files with a Content-Disposition of "attachment"

 

Some servers can be configured with a .htaccess file in the directory, but others need to be changed from the server configuration files.

<IfModule mod_headers.c><FilesMatch ".vpd$">    Header set Content-Disposition "attachment"</FilesMatch></IfModule>

This is for apache servers.

Thanks for your answer. I tried to add that in the .htaccess but that did not work. Where in the apache server is it that i put that code? In the virtual host file?

 

As a backup plan it could be enough to get the right filename when I "Save target as". Now I don't get the .vpd in the filename on Internet Explorer. How do I do that?
