You've tried to setTimeOut within the download.aspx? I mean, when do the redirect to the page Download.aspx in on_load method (codebehind) or javascript (client) of this download page, a few seconds and call again to send the page with a parameter that makes it download the file that way you can see the download page in the browser remember that if a page contains a download start, this behaves as a "" I hope and has helped you a little anyway. Let us know if you found another solution Regards From Mexico.

What you can do is to have a page where it redirects normally and you can use client side code to point to the file. In that way the browser will show the URL and the download will also be possible.
