Default Active Directory - help!

Hello all,

I have a basic problem with accessing Active Directory. I think I am missing something very basic.

I have copied the following code into a project:

************************************************** **

    Function VirDirExists(ByVal IISPath As String) As Boolean
            Dim oDE As System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry
            oDE = New System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry
            Return oDE.Exists(IISPath)
            Label1.Text = Label1.Text & "VirDirExists Failure: " & Err.Description
        End Try
    End Function

    Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

        Dim sIISPath As String
        sIISPath = "IIS:\\localhost\W3SVC\1\Root"


    End Sub


The message shows "access denied". I don't understand what permissions the system is using. I have played with many settings but I don't know technically what's goin on.

Hey bubmachine, I had an issue like this attempting to delete files using a web interface. What I ended up doing was setting my login name and my machine name to 'Modify' permission this fixed the issue.
