Viewing COMDLG32 from an ASP page issues

    We have an ASP page that generates a report. We have
    included a button on the page that allows the user to
    save the report as a .csv file. The button makes use of
    the Microsoft Common Dialog Control to display a "Save
    As." dialog. This works perfectly. However once I send
    the code to the client it seems to only work on some of
    their machines and not others. Within the object
    definition on the ASP page I've added the codebase
    attribute and if the control is not present on the client
    machine the user is prompted and the control is
    downloaded from Microsoft. The ActiveX control however
    does not appear to run. I've tried to replicate this
    problem on my machine by changing the IE security
    settings and I receive a message that informs me that my
    setting don't allow ActiveX controls to run etc. On the
    client site there is no message and all the ActiveX
    security settings are set to "allow". I've tried removing
    and re-registering the control but it seems to make no
    difference. The control is definitely being downloaded
    and registered by the codebase attribute but that seems
    to be where it stops.

    Thanks

    This is a client side issue. I suggest posting in an ActiveX group or an IE
    group. ASP has no use of the common dialog control, since it's a
    server-side technology that is interfaceless.

  3. Hi

    Right if you look in the Temporary Internet Files for a page that starts
    something like this ?Error and the CLSID of your control it will tell you
    what went wrong. That can show where the install went wrong
