Delphi 6 Client Server Application to Windows 2000 running IIS 5 "Access is denied" when attempting to run client.
Posted on 2004-04-14
We have a client/server application written in Delphi 6 using Midas. All was working fine until the Webserver was recently overhauled and everything reinstalled.
The WebConnection component in the Client shows a list of the available application ServerNames correctly but when changing Connected to True we get the "Access is denied" error and the client program terminates. The Server executable runs on the server and FileMon shows no failed file access on the Server.
I have ran dcomcnfg on the server and changed the identity to my own account (which has admin rights) for testing with no change.
I feel dcom is the problem somewhere, maybe with regards to the IUSR or IWAM account but don't know enough about that side of things.
If you feel this would be better posted in the IIS section I will set up a question there and close this one.
We need the answer quite quickly if possible.
Thx in advance,
