IE8 failing with some ASP code...

    One of the users on our site has run into a problem after "upgrading" to
    IE8. We have been using a pure-ASP file upload process without problems with
    versions of IE up to 7 and with a variety of other browsers.

    From what I have been able to discern so far, either IE8 is not processing
    form data correctly, is returning an invalid value to the ASP upload code
    (the error is trapped by our site code, and reports that the file name is
    invalid), or just doesn't like something about the ASP code itself (IE8's
    error message is that "opener.parent is not an object").

    Are there known incompatibilities between IE8 and ASP?

    TIA,

    Neil

    You may be on to something re: changes to the way IE8 processes Javascript,
    as we have also noticed differences in the way that IE8 is processing
    VBscript and HTML. I'll ask about any known incompatibilities with IE8 in a
    jscript group...

    Thanks for the reply, Daniel.
