    CAUSE

    One of the sub-directories has a file that is set as a default content page like: Default.aspx, Default.htm, Default.asp, index.htm, or iisstart.htm.

    When accessing that directory those pages are served up instaed of a listing of the directory.

     

    RESOLUTION

    Change to a UNC share.  Those files are not going to be downloaded to clients if using download from source since IIS will treat them as webpages and not downloadable content.

     

    RESOLUTION 2

     

    1. Open IIS manager and browse to the root of the package.
    2. Highlight the directory.
    3. Double-click "Default Document"
    4. On the right-hand side under "Actions" click "Disable"
      or
    5. Click on the specific page that the package contains and click "Remove" on the right hand side under "Actions"
    6. Click Ok.
