IIS / FP / codebase applet problem

I have IIS and am trying to get an FP hover button working on the server side via an ASP. I have copied the fphover.class file from FP and placed it in an execute directory on the server, pointed to by the codepase parm but it will not run.

I think I am doing something really stupid, can you explain the steps I should go thru to get this working please?

Thanks

FP hover is a pain in the butt in my opinion.  (Won't work on some versions of Netscape, etc., etc.).

OK, now for the solution:
I recommend putting the fphover.class file in a _fpclass subdirectory below where it is called from, and then setting the codebase to _fpclass.  In addition, this directory must have the permissions set properly, and also the file permissions set properly.

I have set up a working example at
http://kanga.unixnet.org/~bigelos/temp/test/fphover.html

I need to double-check the permissions and get them to you.

The permissions for the _fpclass directory are universal read and execute (rx).  The permissions for the html file calling the fphover.class just have to be read (r).  The permissions for the fphover.class file only need to be read (r).

You can see my directory structure (and files) by browsing to
http://kanga.unixnet.org/~bigelos/temp/test

Let me know if you have anymore problems.

Thanks for that but I still have problems. I have copied your stuff to my laptop running NT 4.0 WS and it doesn't seem to work. My understanding of this is that the applet is running on the client side so me not having IIS is nothing to do with the problem. My permissions on the files are "ALL" but I still get the message "applet can't start class fphover not found" in Netscape.

If I create my own simple applets then I can run client or server side with no problem, so I am not sure about permissions.

Any further ideas?

Change the NT permissions on the files and directories so that Everyone has Full Control and see if that fixes it.  (Don't leave it this way--just trouble shooting).

I haven't seen NT permissions with "ALL".  The options I get are Full Control, No Access, Read, Change, and Special Access.  (R-click on the file, choose properties-security-permissions).  

Is ALL a group?
