[OBIEE Issue]Download links not compatible with IE7

Issue Description:

If you setup a download link for each report like below in IE6, it works fine when you download the data like below: OBIEE could transform mhtml data format to the desired the data format ( in this case it is an excel file).

However in IE7, without extra settings, you would encounter with a compatibility problem that stops the OBIEE from transforming the mhtml format to other formats. Then the issues would show like below:

Client Side Solution:

  1. Open the Registry by clicking Start > Run… > Regedit
  2. Navigate to path: My Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
  3. Enter two Registry values with settings below
    1. BypassSSLNoCacheCheck=Dword:00000001
    2. BypassHTTPNoCacheCheck=Dword:00000001

To create registry values, right click > New > DWORD Value

4. Name the first registry value, “BypassSSLNoCacheCheck”. Create another registry value “BypassHTTPNoCacheCheck” using the same method

5. Set value for “BypassSSLNoCacheCheck” to 1

6. Set value for “BypassHTTPNoCacheCheck” to 1

7.  The values should look like  below:

Server Side Solution:

Go to Directory <Oracle_OASHome>/Apache/Apache/conf

Edit the file mod_osso.conf to add a statement ” OssoSendCacheHeaders off” within <Location /analytics>…</Location> as the  following picture:
