Is it ok if I open a FileSystemObject instance in the Session_OnStart event in the global.asa file? This is what I want to do:<BR><BR>I am going to have some Application variables in the Application_OnStart that will tell us what time some files were last updated.<BR>Then I want to check if these files have changed since somebody logged on last, and hence the FSO in Session_OnStart. I will create an instance there of the FSO, check the date last updated of the files against the application variables, and if they have then do some processing. otherwise, do nothing.<BR><BR>No matter what I will close the instance of the FSO inside the Sub Session_onStart.<BR><BR>What do you guys think?
