Add MIME Type to IIS

Due to so many links to topics everywhere, and so many repeat, duplicate topics, I am placing this comment in topics I’ve already fixed that I know are linked to a bunch or that I know I have seen a bunch and that I want to ensure aren’t duplicates or see if I can reuse something {this is the case for Enable Dir Browsing and Configure Bits}.

This step ensures that the IIS recognizes the .delta and .xip files transmitted by the Web Service to the client.

  1. On the web server, right-click My Computer and select Manage.
  2. Right-click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager and select Properties.

  3. Click the MIME Types button.
  4. Click the New button in the MIME Types window.
  5. Add .delta as the extension and enter the following as the MIME type: application/octet-stream

  6. Click OK on the MIME Type screen.
    IMPORTANT: Repeat steps 3-6 for the .xip type.
  7. Click OK on the IIS Properties screen.
