    There is a link to the ASPFAQs at the top right corner of this very page.<BR><BR>Yep, that FAQ is in the category noted.<BR><BR>As for what changed: When you reinstalled, the system probably reset some directory permissions, so probably IIS no longer has permission to write to the directory where the DB is located.<BR><BR>
