Hi,
I have a Windows 2003 server with IIS 6.0. I have a cgi application that tries to read path_translated variable. The return value is always empty. This cgi is working well on my Windows 2000 IIS 5.0 server.
I've tried to set IIS variable AllowPathInfoForScriptMappings to true but still not working.
Is there anything else I need to configure in IIS 6.0 to get this working?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

If you try same thing but with a simple asp page, what happens?
IIS Server Variables
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/ms524602.aspx

PS: See:

PATH_TRANSLATED
The physical path that maps to the virtual path in PATH_INFO, for example, "c:\inetpub\wwwroot\vdir\myisapi.dll". This variable is used by IIS during the processing of ISAPI applications. If the AllowPathInfoForScriptMappings metabase property is set to true (to support exclusive CGI functionality), PATH_INFO will only contain "/zip" and ISAPI applications such as ASP will break.

This use case outlines the migration challenges that organizations face and how the Acronis AnyData Engine supports physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual to physical (V2P), and cross-virtual (V2V) migration scenarios to address these challenges.

AndresM: yes I set it correctly and I restarted IIS. The proof is that it works fine in ASP

ram krihna580: these webpages applies to IIS 4.0. I use IIS 6.0

Thank you.

Hi,

I've found my problem. The problem was in my cgi application (a Bbx application).

Thank you all for your help!
