seems like an odd one.

first of all, only use http://localhost - forget about the other one.

check the web site properties in the iis manager to see what local folder is referred to.

by default, the home directory is something like "c:\inetpub\wwwroot"

right click on that folder ewith windows explorer, and check security tab.  make sure that user 'IUSR_YOUR-AS3JWUWSGX' has read and execute access to that folder and all subfolders.

cheers,  Mike.

Mike,

Please provide more detail on how to carry out your recommendation to:

   check the web site properties in the iis manager to see what local folder is referred to.

I tried to carry out your recommendation to:

   right click on that folder ewith windows explorer, and check security tab.

but under XP Home, windows explorer appears to have no security tab.

Thanks,  Tim
