Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded

This will be a quite brief post, but yet many could benefit from this post. Do you see this message when you click a download link on Internet Explorer?

Don't worry this is not hard to solve at all. Just follow the steps below:

Open Internet Explorer
Click “Tools” -> “Internet Options”
Click “Security” tab
Choose “Internet” zone
Click “Custom level…” under “Security level for this zone” area
Scroll down to “Downloads/File download” in “Security Settings – Internet Zone” window
Choose “Enable”
Click OK and Apply

Now you should be able to download your file.

Hope this helps someone.

Good luck,
Serdar.
