  1. I receive ASHX files via company email and I can't read them on my personal computer.

    XP sp3

    Office 2000

    Have searched but so far have not found any free app to convert these to i.e.
    pdf

    Thanks!

    Rename the file as a .pdf then try to open it in Adobe reader or Foxit or Xchange pdf reader.

    Download doPDF and install.
    Let it to install its driver.
    Then it will act as a printer (a virtual printer)
    Print your ASHX through doPDF printer.
    Then you will have a option to save your file as pdf

    @LeonardKonrad - first this is a thread from May 2011. Second, I think you totally missed the original question. Its not that he can't make it a pdf, its that he couldn't open the ashx file on his computer.

    I think the .ashx extension has something to do with the ASP.NET framework used by Google Chrome. I don't understand the technical aspects, but it's annoying. Sometimes I actually use Internet Explorer (gasp!) when I'm downloading email attachments to avoid the problem.
     
  8. Thank you!! That worked.
