Hi, MAX_PATH is in the Windows's unit. You need
Uses Windows
it should be fine , then.

As to your original question, you certainly can access any file within the directory where you put your CGI program. If you are allowed to put CGI program there, I can not see why you can not put other files there?
If you want to access other files out of there, it seems a hacker's function. I believe that shared or public server is not allowed unless you have the rights of Admin.

Thanks :) that’s fixed it

I’m not trying to access anything outside of the CGI bin, however I just didn’t know how to access the stuff in the CGI bin - now I do :)

However I am still trying to figure out how I could cope with multiple simultaneous requests for the same file.... any ideas?

Thanks

David

Normally, different requests should reside in different threads.
You just need to
1. var CS: TRTLCriticalSection;
   and
InitializeCriticalSection(CS) in the OnFormcreate event,

2. put the read file code between the
  EnterCriticalSection

and

 leaveCriticalSection;

This should work.

The code between this clock can only be processed for one thread within one Process (or application).
More details can be obtained from help

Good luck.
