Make sure to _un_install MSXML 3 first and then install MSXML 4. And you are using IIS, that must be
restarted to notice the change. Best to reboot the system...
Hello folks. Sorry for being away a while.
I have now tried the suggestions I got from you guys:
1) Install MSXML 4, perhaps there is a known bug in MSXML 3 that is
fixed in later versions.
2) Try a local path (C:\path\XML\paths.xml)
3) Specifying the second argument of Document()
Here are the answers to those suggestions:
1) Installed MSXML4, and that didn't help. Same behaviour.
2) Local/physical path worked fine.
3) Tried second argument with no success.
BUT, all of the sudden, the relative path started working! I know my
develop environment is not completely stable, so this may be the reason.
So I tried restarting the environment several times and tried an
absoulte path (/mickel/XML.. and http://gabbah....) and relative paths..
but still, only relative paths work.
But this is good enough for me, at least for the moment.

Subject: Re: document()
I will try to summarize my problem once again.
-- General: ----------------------------------
First off, all the XML/XSL files can be found at
The ASP-file: http://gabbah.no-ip.org/test.asp.txt . This asp script
gets an XML file from a COM object, and transforms it using
http://gabbah.no-ip.org/mickel/XSL/PC/pc-templates.xsl (which in turn
includes all XSL files needed).
I'm using (normal) ASP with VBscript, MSXML3 on IIS5. WinXP pro SP2.
-- Specific: ----------------------------------
The problem only appears when I try to access a static XML file
residing outside the folder where the function document() is used. It
does not matter if the XML file resides in a subfolder or in a sibling
folder, as long as it's in another folder it doesn't work.
The XSLs involved are http://gabbah.no-ip.org/mickel/XSL/PC/search.xsl
and http://gabbah.no-ip.org/mickel/XSL/PC/shared_variables.xsl , which
So the static XML file I want to access is
The error I get is that it can't find the specified path.
I have also tried using an absolute path (mickel/XML/paths.xml ) and a
qualified URL like the one above.
I have tried backward slashes.
I have given all folders below wwwroot read permissions to user
Hope I haven't forgotten anything :)
