Hi all,

I am busy writing an ISAPI URL mapping filter. Mapping the physical path work just fine, but as soon as i attempt to use a database (in a datamodule) it hangs. ie IIS will not restart.

I had this will a Com object I wnated to use in the filter as well. As soon as i create the com object (or database connection) IIS hangs.

Im currently using XP pro with Delphi 5 and I have the filter loaded as a global filter with a high priority.

Also, how can i debug this DLL. Its really frustrating not being able to step though the code.

I suggest using OmniHttp as a debugging webserver.
You can find it at http://www.omnicron.ca/httpd/

Sometimes it's useful to code your isapi app as a cgi exe and then convert it to dll later. It requires only token changes in the project file to compile as either. Running as a cgi app may help shed more light on the problem.

I still use d5 ent with IIS, but apparently d6 allows some IDE debugging, although I`ve not heard enough to persuade me to upgrade yet.

Further, if you say what database (flat file systems may require additional rights) that can help, and I`ll say up front that the BDE sucks as any kind of web middleware.

HI Ray,

Thanks, I will try your suggestions. Im not using the BDE (I decided a long time ago that it sucks and would never use it). The database is SQL7 and im using ADO. I guess rights to the database (or com object) would be the first thing to check.

Use Run/Parameters/HostApplication and turn off compiler optimization etc. to step through delphi dll's.

ggets,
If you can post your solution to the problem, this will add value to our database and I can refund your question and PAQ it.  If you cannot, then I will have to delete it and that would be a shame.  Thanks.
