I have been assigned the task of creating a Web Service wrapper around pre-existing Visual Basic ActiveX DLLs. I developed the service in ASP.NETand everything functions as expected, except one part.
One of the tasks of the DLLs is to create a text file on the disk and write information to it. The DLL will work as expected when called by the original Visual Basic application but not when called by the ASP.NET Web Service. I keep receiving a file/path access error. Oh, and yes the path does exist on the disk. The Web Service is in VB.NET on v1.1 of the Framework. The service is running on IIS 5.1 on a Windows 2000 Server. The IIS security is Windows Authentication and Basic Authentication. The web.config is set to
authentication mode Windows and identity impersonate true. Oh! and yes the ASPNET account has rights to access the directory. Any one have any idea as to why this is happening and possible solutions?
