Default FileSystemObject problem...

I am having a problem with the FileSystemObject running on my machine. I'm using WinXp's IIS on a P3 650mhz laptop. Whenever I create an instance of the FileSystemObject, the page just sits there loading. It doesn't time out, it doesn't error out, it just sits there loading. All I have to do is set an object equal to CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") and the page is doomed. I don't have to do anything more then that. My page could be one line <% Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")%>.

I've been coding ASP for about 5 years and using the FileSystemObject for almost as long and have never encountered this problem before.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Did you forget Server all those times or just this time? How about trying that now?
<% Set fso = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")%>

With the FileSystem Object,there is no need for the Server. portion, CreateObject works just fine.

Following Microsoft's example, they don't use it either: http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;300982

The code works fine live on IIS 6.0 on Windows Server 2003 as well as on IIS 4.0 on Windows NT 4 and PWS on Windows 98SE. I thought maybe there was something quirky with the version of IIS on WinXP.

Just to satisfy your post, adding the Server. doesn't produce results.
