in thread Unavailable network drives in CGI scripts

This is running under IIS 5.1. I added two more lines:
print `whoami`; print $ENV{USERNAME};
'whoami' returned my username (not a web account), but the USERNAME environment variable was empty.

    Try adding something like this:

    if(-d 'w:\'){ print "w:\\ is a directory\n"; if(-R 'w:\'){ print "w:\\ is readable\n"; }else{ print "w:\\ is not readbable\n"; } }else{ print "w:\\ is not a directory\n"; }

    They say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.

      I tried it with 'w:', 'w:\' and 'w:/'. In all three cases, it says it's not a directory.

        Are you quite sure that windows agrees that the drive designator is a directory?
