I am trying to just open a text file and output it to the page. However, whenever i try to read the file, it locks up IIS. Is there something that i am missing? <BR><BR>Set fs = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")< BR>if fs.FileExists(server.mappath("file1.htm")) then <BR> set outfile = fs.OpenTextFile(server.Mappath("file1.htm")<BR> Response.write outfile.ReadAll<BR> outfile.close <BR> set outfile = nothing <BR>end if <BR>fs.close <BR>set fs = nothing<BR><BR><BR>Is there a setting/permission that i am missing somewhere? thanks
