Windows 2000 server getting error in browser saying permission issue.

I am trying to execute a form that uses asp and creates an xml data file.  The browser returns this error on submit.

Desc: Permission Denied
number 70
SRC:  Microsoft VB Script runtime error

The IUSR_ account has full access to the folder so I am not sure why it won't let a user submit the data.  The folks who make the software I am using say it's on the server side and has to do with permission.

Normally if you try to execute an ASP page to create an XML file, there will be a lot more than just opening the web page. You say that the IUSR has enough permissions, but where does it have permissons?? Only on the iispub directory?? Normally a lot of activaty is done on the c:\Windows\microsoft shared directory (thought it was there anyhowes). Try giving the IUSR user permissions on this dir..

If this doesn't work, try running filemon (FIle Monitor), it checks which files are opened, maybe you can find a file that is being opened somewhere on the C drive that you did not know about and make sure to give the IUSR account permissions on these dirs or files....

Thanks I added the permission to the NT diretory and also made sure it was on several of the local access options and it's working fine now.
