Intraweb connection to ODBC problem

Hi,
I am trying to get an intraweb application (vs 10, delphi 2010 enterprise) to work on a microsoft IIS web server (2003 R2).  Using ODBC explorer, my ODBC source seems to be working fine, being set up as as system DSN. The intraweb application is also working, in the sense that the screen shows in windows explorer - BUT, it cannot connect to ODBC, although it does that just fine when it runs as a standalone on a local machine. I am using Devart's unidac for the link between Delphi and ODBC.
I am not particularly well versed in web programming and configuration, so any help would be appreciated.
best,
Jon

See my article at http://www.drbob42.com/examines/examinC3.htm for the complete steps to deploy any ISAPI DLL written in Delphi. It may be that you just forgot one of the steps, but there are many steps, so I hope you don't mind to read the article instead of me suggesting about a dozen different things to try. ;-)

the solution is a general one. Partially, it seems that one of the problems is how intraweb deals with url arguments differently when running as standalone and isapi.
