The warning message is:

The file you are trying to open, 'download.xls', is in a different format than specified by the file extension. Verify that the file is not corrupted and is from a trusted source before opening the file.

Yes, I knew it, but after that it works. Have you some advice to avoid it?

No, I have no solution right now, but I suspect the mime headers are the problem.
