I am checking to see if this is a known issue.

Reply was: "I think IE 11 is the last available browser that supported native application plugins, hence they see the described behavior."

can you please atleast suggest some workaround for fix to avoid this behavior. since ie11 is majorly being used in all latest systems.

This only happens with specific mime types, and only when the dispatcher is being utilized.  Going direct to the publish instance does not have any issue, got to be a dispatcher setting.

For example, this file on IE11 on Windows 7 works fine:

This file just dumps the file to the screen with IE11, works fine on FF and Chrome
