Unable to download attachments - v2.6

I did a fresh install of v2.6 running on a discountasp.net 4.0 hosted environment.  For the most part everything went as documented.  However, I am not able to download file attachments and cannot view videos in blog posts.

After doing a little searching I found that the download link seems to be the issue.   The url is built like this by default:

/Blog/FILES%2f2012%2f07%2fSample.xlsx.axds

Clicking this link brings the user to "Ooops! I can't find the page you're looking for..."

If the URL is changed to the below, then the file will download.

/Blog/file.axd?file=%2f2012%2f07%2fSample.xlsx

The video control renders as a black area with the "play" button and other video controls, but nothing happens when play is clicked.  I uploaded an mp4 format video and verified that it did get saved to the media folder. 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Paul

@Paul,

Did you ever resolve this issue?  I'm having the same problem on a live blog, as well as a vanilla test instance, documented here:  http://blogengine.codeplex.com/discussions/374360

Thanks

No. I didn't get a response and still have the same issue.

This is not a fix, but it works. Change the link to point to /file.axd and pass the file in the below format as a querystring variable.
