File Access Error .IPX IPIX 360 FILES

If you encounter an error with the message "file access error" when serving IPIX files via a windows server and IIS it is likely that:

1) Your browser has no java support (in this case you will NOT see the IPIX logo)
2) Your IIS Server is not configured to serve these files:

i) Right click the website in IIS > Properties

ii) Select the HTTP headers button

iii) Add a new MIME type with a .IPX extension and MIME type of application/x-ipx

Hope this helps someone - it drove me mad for 2 hours!
