Unhappy Content type for download

Dear all,

I have a jar file in server. I download it through ftp. And then I run the command : java -jar Hello.jar
The output is ok.

Then I try to make a download page (php) for user to download the executable jar file. However, after I download it. I run the same command. The output generate the following error :
Exception in thread "main" error in opening zip file

        at Method)
        at<init>(Unknown Source)
        at java.util.jar.JarFile.<init>(Unknown Source)
        at java.util.jar.JarFile.<init>(Unknown Source)

The download.php content
PHP Code:
    header("Cache-Control: ");// leave blank to avoid IE errors
header("Pragma: ");// leave blank to avoid IE errors
//    header("Content-type: application/octet-stream");
header("Content-type: application/java-archive");
header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=\"".$fileName."\"");
header("Content-Disposition: inline; filename=$fileName");
header("Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary");                                        
header ("Connection: close"); 

so I guess the download.php cause the jar file error. but I cannot find the error. Would anyone know the solution?

Any person familiar with header.

thx help!!
