Certain file types are not uploading in my asp page. (Bare with me)
Posted on 2004-04-06
I have a ASP application that lets the end user upload a file. This app works fine from any windows system other then Windows 2003 server. I have tested it thoughly from windows 2000, win 98 and win xp. The app uses encType="multipart/form-data" to post with and it is putting the files into a SQL database (binary).
From My Windows 2003 server, runing Internet Explorer 6, the app will upload file types of .txt. .gif .jpg .xls to name a few, but I can't upload .bmp or .exe type files.
The IIS server is on windows 2003 and the SQL database is also on 2003. So any client hitting the web app is running the asp code from the windows 2003 server. The problem has to be client side, because the backend process is all the same. If I upload a file from say a win 2000 box with IE 6 it works just fine, but if I do the same steps from the win 2003 box with IE 6 it won't upload the file. I don't get any errors (probably my fault with my asp code) it just puts a "NULL" row in the database.
Any help is greatly appriciated!
