Did you copy obout dll files into the bin directory?
And does your aspnet account has proper permission(read and list and execute)
on this folder?

i'm pretty sure i have added the dl files in the bin directory.

How do i check the permissions on the aspnet account for that folder?

in File explorer, right click on the folder and choose properties,
and then in the security tab, check permissions assigned to each

On XP, assign read and list folder and execute permissions to account ASPNET.
On windows server 2003, do the same to account Network Service.

i understand what you mean, but there is no security tab! only general, sharing, web sharing and customise.

You need to disable simple file sharing (Explorer -> Tools -> Folder Options / View Tab / scroll all the way to the bottom and uncheck "Use Simple File Sharing (Recommended)".

i found the tab after you said to uncheck the tab, and i added the permissions to the account aspnet.

Thank you
