Default asp smart upload/microsoft excel driver

Hi! I'm currently developing a system where a user can upload an excel file..and then the system will read the rows in excel, and then insert them to a database. The system was fine when it was working on a Win2000 server. But then we had to move the system to an NT Server. And now, it won't execute the task anymore.

I used ASPSmartUpload for uploading the file and then I used this connection string...

        Set cn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
        cn.Open "DBQ=" & Server.MapPath(exceldb) & ";" & _
        "DRIVER={Microsoft Excel Driver (*.xls)};"

to connect to the excel file. When I'm running it, the error is...

error 'ASP 0113'
Script timed out


The maximum amount of time for a script to execute was exceeded. You can change this limit by specifying a new value for the property Server.ScriptTimeOut or by changing the value in the IIS administration tools.

Can someone please tell me why this happens? I can't really test the system because it is already on the server and I'm not allowed to access it. And we don't have a client pc which has Windows NT and IIS/Personal Web Server on it. So I really can't test it. At first I thought the problem might be in the installation of ASPSmartUpload. But I think if something is wrong there, a different error should have occurred (example, missing dll). So I figured, maybe the Excel Driver's the problem. I really don't know.

Will there be a problem if I use ASPSmartUpload and/or Microsoft Excel Driver in Windows NT?

I hope someone can shed light for me on this subject.

Thank you very much!!

I am not really sure whether this is the cause of the problem, but I would look into upgrading ADO on the NT version to the version you were using on your 2000 box.
NT 4 is pretty old, so the drivers (including the excel drivers) are old as well. Check out http://msdn.microsoft.com/data/Default.aspx for more info about the ADO drivers.

Are you sure ASPSmartUpload is installed on the server? Maybe it isn't (or not correctly), but you get a timeout for other reasons....

What is the RAM difference between the two machines? How about processor speed? If the NT machine is significantly slower than the Win2K machine, it may really need more processing time. Also check the database. Are the all the tables\ stored procedures installed properly (if it has also moved)? If it on a different server, can it be reached by the web server? Lastly, make sure your error handling is good. An improperly handled error can have different effects on different systems.
