KB Article 312546: Managed .exe File Sporadically Fails to Run over HTTPS

KB 312546 says running managed executable through HTTPS may not work.


This is causing some confusion. Exactly when things will not work?

Our core developer explains it below:

The reasons for HTTPS download failing we observed were:
* Setting "Do not save encrypted pages to disk" in IE
* Server sending "nocache" for SSL-encrypted data
* Server requiring authentication
* Expired/invalid certificate on the server

CLR and IE teams are not currently aware of anything fundamentally wrong with HREF exes over HTTPS
