    Though it has been copied, how about regsvr32 on those Dlls? Any clues?

    I have registered aspsmartupload.dll using regsvr32. i copied  aspsmartuploadutil.dll
    to c:/winnt/system32 as mentioned in the documentation.

    you need to allow the IUSR_machinename read/write/modify acces to folder that aspsmartupload.dll is in.

    I believe it is in the documentation for this component.  I have had the same problem with this component.  I ended up moving the files to another folder, and allowing the IUSR_ access to that folder instead of allowing that kind of access to my system32 folder.  and lo and behold it worked.

    I've since gotten rid of this component and went and bought Persits ASPUpload.  (much more useful, as it allows bigger file uploads, was easier to install, etc...)

    Best bet would be to do something like this...replace it with another upload component (i understand cost may be an issue, and since ASPSmart Upload is free people tend to go that route, but the money you shell out for Persits component will be well worth it in the long run)

    Pls help!!
    thanx Nebu

    Hi All,
    My problem solved. it was not the problem with permissions. it was some other problem. What I did is, i inregistered the component.Deleted the dll from the machine. restarted the server. Copied a new copy of dll to the server. Registered the aspsmartupload.dll using regsvr32. copied aspsmartuploadutil.dll to system32 folder. now its working fine
    thanx a lot for kevp75 and deepknet for putting their efforts
