I am trying to execute the code below from a web page on an IIS server to record the responses that a user enters into the page.

I get an error "800a0046" which when I Googled says permission denied.

At this point I am running this from localhost as an admin on the box. I have tried writing to C:\ and C:\inetpub\wwwroot. Any ideas?


thanks,

dim fs,f
set fs=Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 
set f=fs.CreateTextFile("c:\inetpub\wwwroot\test.txt",true)
f.write("Hello World!")
f.write("How are you today?")
f.close
set f=nothing
set fs=nothing

I'm not sure what's going on but make sure your ASP.Net application has write access to the directory you are trying to save the file to.

I'm surprised it doesn't work for you locally, but you can try giving permissions to the aspnet_wp account for the folder you want to write to and see if that helps.

i gave permissions to IUSR and IUSRS group and used "GetFolder" method to specify folder as well as text file. this seems to work.
