enabling parent paths is a security risk and is considered bad practice. they are also disabled by default in the later versions of IIS. if you must have them enabled, follow these steps to do so

I am using iis6 so do not have the features listed in the link you have sent me. Not big on classic asp but know that alts to parent paths are preferred but when I used virtual the site stopped working. Will have more time to fix this at a later date, for now need to resolve parent paths.

I accepted this solution as it works. However I knew this solution just did not know why iis6 was throwing up the error even though the parent paths were enabled. I tried using virtual but the application for pureaspupload did not like it. :(

Thanks for the reply though
