xml paths
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...

Good luck..


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.

Hello Oleg.
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 both use
So the static XML file I want to access is http://gabbah.no-ip.org/mickel/XML/paths.xml .

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 "everyone".

Hope I haven't forgotten anything :) /Gabriel
