Keep getting empty vpath when querying Index Server

I'm using Index Server on Windows 2000, and I'm indexing just a subdirectory on my web site. I have the catalog properties set so it knows it's part of the site, and I created a virtual directory in the site for the catalog. When I query my catalog, it finds files containing the search string, and it will tell me the correct directory and path information, but what I need is the vpath information, which is always empty. Any suggestions? This is driving me crazy, and my boss is breathing down my neck to get this solved. Thanks.

don't know the exact def for vpath but ... if it is a virtual path under your web site, you can get this path from the physical path.

Lets say your search returns a path for the file into the variable FilePath

Example:
'----------------------
FilePath = "C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\web\files\"
' We hope that path to the virtual directory is C:\Inetpub\wwwroot
VirtDir = "C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\"
'Then we can get virtual path to the file using:

if instr(lcase(FilePath),lcase(VirtDir)) > 0 Then vpath = Replace(Replace(FilePath,VirtDir,""),"\","/")

'----------------------

Of course this code is untested but it should help.

just for info I've played with Indexing server for a few years and it's never worked for me.

I do the same as j2nku suggests and rewrite the file path.
