I have an ASP app that creates an excel object, fills it up and then saves it on the server and streams a copy to the client. This worked fine under NT4.0 but when I moved the code to W2000 it wouldn&#039;t work. I found out that under W2000 I needed to run DCOMCNFG and give Excel launch permission to the IUSR_XXX account, this fixed the problem and everything worked fine.<BR><BR>I just noticed however that any time an excel spreadsheet is created from the ASP app a shortcut to the applications excel download folder and a shortcut to the actual excel spreadsheet is placed on the C drive of the webserver.<BR><BR>Any ideas what this might be and how to fix it?<BR><BR>Thanks,
