I have an aspx page called from an asp page.

When the aspx page is not spawned in a new window, everything works just fine.

However, when that same aspx page opened up in a new window. I am losing the cookies and their values are not being found?  I am not sure where the hole is when spawing this new window and its driving me crazy!

THis is in II6.  Here is my cookie code in the aspx code behind.     Thanks, jrmcdona

                  Response.Expires=-1;


                  HttpContext ctx = HttpContext.Current;
                  // Read the cookie
                  HttpCookie inCookie = ctx.Request.Cookies["9JHS7"];

                  if(inCookie != null)
                  {
                        ID1.Text = "Cookie value: " + inCookie.Values["ID1"].ToString();
                        ID2.Text = "Cookie value: " + inCookie.Values["ID2"].ToString();
                        ID3.Text = "Cookie value: " + inCookie.Values["ID3"].ToString();
                  }

if(inCookie != null)


After that could you do a Response.Write : Cookie not Found...else get the values? I bet it is not finding the cookie.

Last week I had a similiar problem, strangly enough I found the error to be that the cookie it was looking for was a localhost cookie, while the original cookie from an ASP page (that I was looking for...same idea as you), was not a localhost cookie...when deployed it read it fine, locally on my machine it did not work.

Well I was opening the the file in a new window and that is where it lost the cookies. I simply stopped opening the report in a new window and it solved the problem. I dont why that is happening but it is!

thanks, jrmcdona
