Hello,

I'm alittle new to this, but we have a web app that converts .doc and .xls files to .htm files and then can be viewed in an intranet site. The links run fine under my local machine but in our intranet site, the links give me this error:

The page cannot be displayed:
Technical Information (for support personnel)

Error Type:
RMClients (0x800A004B)
Path/File access error
/Refmaterial/Codes/WebClass1.ASP, line 13

Browser Type:
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; T312461; Hotbar 4.1.5.0; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Page:
GET /Refmaterial/Codes/WebClass1.ASP

Time:
Monday, September 20, 2004, 10:08:59 AM

==============
The strange thing is that if I run my app in Visual Studio.NET the links work, then I open internet explorer, and go to same link on the actual intranet site, the same link works.

If I didn't test my web app locally and just went straight to the intranet page and clicked a link I'll get the above error.
Any ideas?

Thanks!

Chris

I am wondering about this : maybe when u do the conversion, some  of the link are converted as http://localhost/xxxx.... and if u just put the whole thing to the internet, end users won't be able to browse something like http://localhost/xxx.... on your web server, that maybe be one fo the reason.

Also, after conversion, be ware that there are some kind of directories that maybe generated. e.g. folder x.files  with some .xml inside this folder, don't forget to copy them as well.

The 'access error' would suggest to me that the permissions on the directory, in which the file you're trying to load/get resides, are set incorrect. I think you don't have execute or read permissions set on the directory.

I agree, it's most likely a permissions thing, I have to wait for the network admin to come and fix that stuff. In the meantime, is there a way to make the IIS server clear its cache every so often? (or maybe i have to dump my cache) because when I click on a link, it's referencing another similiar page, but it's for the wrong business client.

I'll get back to you on your suggestions.

I found the reason, and got away from the webclass all together. I pointed the links to the file directly on the network drive instead of using the webclass to do it.


Thanks for your effort though, I really appreciate it and next time, if I get some weird errors I'll try th eones you guys suggested....
