Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") file exist doesn't work

Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") file exist doesn't work

(OP)
Hi,

I have classic asp code using Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") to check if file exist. The code is working fine but when we try to move to new server which has iis7 (the current one using iis5.1) then the method checking for fileExist always return false.

if fs.FileExists("C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\temp\" + docname) = True then
docfound = "yes"
else
docfound = "no"
end if

For sure the file is in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\temp. Folder temp is a shared folder.

Thanks in advance.

But is 'temp' part of the site that the script is running on OR does the user that the site is running as have full access to it
