RE: 404 means "file not found", Roger Harris, 01-09-2006

The problem may be restriction of the operation right for the odb.exe under IIS

Dear Roger,

Firstly, thank you very much for your help. As mentioned before, I set index.htm inside a folder of wwwidget, which contained db and odb folders under C:/inetpub/wwwroot/. Secondly, I tried to open the index.htm in the browser, it didn't work and prompted me 404 error. Thirdly, I put the odb.exe file inside the cgi-bin folder, which is under the directory C:/inetpub/wwwroot/. Finally, the URL is "http://localhost/cgi-bin/odb.exe/wwwidget/odb/table1.odb" in the address window after I've got the 404 error. Thinking your hints, I thought that the problem may be restriction of the access right for the odb.exe operated under IIS. Is it possible? Could you tell me your email address so as to send you bitmap picture for showing my setting that is correct?

Best regards,
