cfcontent filename problem - Macromedia ColdFusion

Hello all- I'm trying to use cfcontent to force the download of an exe. The problem is that when the save to disk dialog box opens, the filename is the name of my cfm file instead of the exe. I downloaded the file, changed the extension to exe, and it worked. Therefore, I know it's downloading the correct file, it's just giving it the wrong name. How can I specify that the file be saved on the clients pc with the same name as on the server ? TIA, Aaron...

    Default cfcontent filename problem

    Hello all-

    I'm trying to use cfcontent to force the download of an exe. The problem is
    that when the save to disk dialog box opens, the filename is the name of my cfm
    file instead of the exe. I downloaded the file, changed the extension to exe,
    and it worked. Therefore, I know it's downloading the correct file, it's just
    giving it the wrong name. How can I specify that the file be saved on the
    clients pc with the same name as on the server ?

    TIA,

    Put this before the cfcontent:-

    <cfheader name="Content-Disposition" value="filename=file.exe">
