Thanks for the assist. This doesn't make sense to me. If I pass a word document to a client with the correct mime type Word kicks in on the client and opens the document. I'm not worried about the login screen. I expect users to get that. I just can't figure out why when I pass a BO Report it won't open BO.
On every client machine you have to assign MIME type (value of "Content-Type" header) that corresponds to your data format to the appropriate application. So, the IE would know which application to launch when it receives the data of that type, similar to predefined types for PDF or Word viewers. You also should use content disposition to indicate whether the data should be saved or displayed.
