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

Hi,

open internet service manager, (if, that is, 'XP Home' even has one - i wouldn't know - never seen it) right click the default web site, choose properties.
click "home directory" tab, review what is in the "local path" box.  this reflects the current web root. (eg c:\inetpub\wwwroot)

open that path parent in windows explorer, (eg c:\inetpub) right click on the web root (eg wwwroot) and choose properties.  now if there is a security tab, select it and make sure the IUSR_user is in there.

if there is still no security tab, then you are out of luck with me because that will mean that xp home has some chopped up OS that i have no idea what it looks like - and that i probably don;t *want* to know either! ;-)

cheers.

Is your drive NTFS? If the drive is not NTFS then you will not see the security tab because you cannot set permissions on a FAT32 drive. Does the account IUSR exist on the XP Home machine?
