ASP.net virtual file download with Counter tool can be used to download files in programmatic way. We can not provide direct link to various extensions like- .txt, .pdf, .htm, .xml, etc. Because these files are supported by many browsers and are shown in browser directly. But if we want our website to make these file available for download then we have to choose programmatic way.
Also, when we set direct link to any download file, we are not able to count how many times file is downloaded.
You may use this tool(asp.net page) to solve both the purposes. This tool provides you to download browser supported files and also maintains count of the downloaded files which you can emphasize on website to show the popularity of a file to a visitor.
You need not to be a programmer to use this tool. Its designed by keeping designers in mind.
I hope you will love our first submission. Thanks
