Upload file size validation

Experts,

I have a web form on an intranet site which allows internal users to upload documents and send them as attachments via email. I'm using classic ASP to attain this task. When the user completes the form, the files get uploaded to the server, sent to the user via email, and deleted right away from the server.

I want to validate the size of these files to be uploaded. I realize that this cannot be done using JScript. I've used the getSize() function (see code below) but in vain. Neither IE nor Chrome respond to this code and FF throws "ActiveXObject is not defined" error.

I've also tried using the server side validation and it doesn't work either (code attached below).

Please let me know what other options I can opt for. I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks,
<script type="text/vbscript" language="vbscript">
function getSize(){

    	var myFSO = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
		var filepath = document.frmSend.attach1.value;
		var thefile = myFSO.getFile(filepath);
		var size = thefile.size;
		alert(size + " bytes");
}    



------------------------------------------------------------

<%
Set Upload = Server.CreateObject("Persits.Upload")
' Limit file size to 50000 bytes, throw an exception if file is larger
Upload.SetMaxSize 50000, True

' Intercept all exceptions to display user-friendly error
On Error Resume Next

' Perform upload
Upload.Save "c:\upload"

' 8 is the number of "File too large" exception
If Err.Number = 8 Then
   Response.Write "Your file is too large. Please try again."
Else
   If Err <> 0 Then
      Response.Write "An error occurred: " & Err.Description
   Else
      Response.Write "Success!"
   End If
End If
%>
</script>

Is any part of this being stored on the db?

You could easily ascertain the size from there.

How about this?

<%
Set Upload = Server.CreateObject("Persits.Upload")
' Limit file size to 50000 bytes, throw an exception if file is larger
Upload.SetMaxSize 50000, True

' Intercept all exceptions to display user-friendly error
On Error Resume Next

' Perform upload
Upload.Save "c:\upload"

%>
Files Size<BR>
<%
For Each File in Upload.Files
Response.Write File.Name & "= " & File.Path & " (" & File.Size &" bytes)<BR>"
Next
%>

<P>


' 8 is the number of "File too large" exception
If Err.Number = 8 Then
   Response.Write "Your file is too large. Please try again."
Else
   If Err <> 0 Then
      Response.Write "An error occurred: " & Err.Description
   Else
      Response.Write "Success!"
   End If
End If
%>
