    Hi,
    Im working with asp.net visual web developer 2005.
    Im writing an asp .net application on windows XP enviroment.
    Im using .net FileUpload control to get the path from the user.
    If the path is a network relative path (not mapped to any drive) i.e
    in the format "\\servr_name\..."
    than i get internet explorer could not display the web page.
    It happens immediately on client side (no place to debug).
    Any other path in the format for example "h:\...\..." works fine
    whether its local or network.
    Can't find a solution to it ....
    Ant ideas ?
    Thanks.

  2. What error message is the client receiving? Also, try turning off simple
    errors so you can see the full error message from ASP.NET.
