Over here I have created a folder with name Data inside my solution, so the Server.Mappath("Data") as well the statemet for converting assigning the src property of the IFrame I1 is working properly. But I want to use the files from a folder which resides in a network folder like
My basic question is, can a virtual directory in IIS point to a physical path that's not on the local machine? For instance, right now I have a virtual path /NaturalGasReport/NYMEX which points to physical path C:Program Files (x86)NymexSettleNATGAS_REPORTNYMEX, but I want it to point to a physical path on a difference PC on the same network. Is this possible? (I know I can just try it out so I apologize for asking but I thought it would be best to get an explanation along with "yes" or "no"). If you want more detail, this is what I need to do. To make a long story short, because of a vendor product we are using that won't run on a 64-bit operating system, I have to run a program called Generate_NGReportData.vbs (it's a vbscript program) on a PC I will call 28. It uses a vendor product which produces jpg files which are graphs of the Natural Gas market. The machine where I wish it could run is called RTEST01 but this machine runs a 64-bit OS and the components won't work there. RTEST01 has the databases. So, I created a datasource on 28 which points to RTEST01's database. The vbs program will read the data, generate the reports, and write one row to a database table on RTEST01. RTEST01 has to run the complimentary program which sends these reports (via email). 28 is not an email server so it can't email the reports. So on RTEST01 I will run Send_NaturalGasReport.vbs. This program creates an email body of html. The html references [URL]NaturalGasReport/NYMEX/" & Day(nymex_update_dt) & ".jpg which is a virtual directory pointing to C:Program Files (x86)NymexSettleNATGAS_REPORTNYMEX. I need it to point to the folder and files on 28.So if my initial question has a simple yes answer then I am all set. If not, examine my architecture and propose an alternative solution.
I am having a fileuploade control on my aspx page. On button click I want the physical fullpath of my file, which i am going to upload on server. If the file is in desktop then it should show C:Users Admin1DesktopSampleHonourImages.png
I have used Path.GetFullPath(Fileupload1.FileName) but it is giving C:Program Files (x86)IIS ExpressHonourImages.png instead of actual path
I have a custom ASP.NET application that I utilize for several clients that I host. Each client has a separate domain and the application is normally a child application under the root domain [URL]. The application files are the same (aspx, ascx, style sheets, images, etc.). The only thing different is the web.config file for each client. As development of the application continues to evolve, I have to update the application for each directory and this obviously becoming tedious. I am trying to come up with a method keep the application up to date. My first though is placing the application into a single physical path and creating multiple applications pointing to that path (the problem with this method is I can't have different web.config files). I am curious as to what solution others are using in this scenario...
I need to display an Image in web page. But the Image doesn't exist in the Web directory. If the image is under web directory I know that just "../Images/TN/my.jpg" will work. But the image is available in "D:ImagesTNmy.jpg" and My web site is deployed in "C:appsmywebsite". How do I convert the "D:ImagesTNmy.jpg" path to a relative path so that the Image will be visible in web page?
I have a website solution where I have among other things some code for a photo album. I know wanted to make a separate website solution with only the photoalbum code. It is however giving me some issues with not finding files, which I believe are caused by not being able to set the virtual path in the website solution. The option is simply not present in the options as you can see on the image on the right.
I ahev seen many discussion related to this , but I could not find proper answer , I have live web site set up on IIS 6, and set virtual path MYSite and then phisical path to the web.config file on actual location.
I have copy this site to another server for the purpose of further development, so I need to run production site exactly same as live site , i can do edit in production and update pages to live.
Once I have copied the site give this error virtual path '/includes/menu.htm' maps to another application, which is not allowed
i have master page include menu as html files <!--#include file="../includes/topmenu.htm"-->
I have open site in IIS 7 and add virtual directory and gave a name (not same as live) and choose physical path to the root folder of the site. In IIS 7 I cannot give web.config file for the path, it should be folder. and I have change identity in apppool to Network Service and gave readaccess permission to folder.
When I press start on my VS2010/Silverlight/C# project, it opens a new instance of the included webserver and opens my browser window so I can test the application. Unfortunately something has happened and I am not sure what it was.. The browser window now opens the starting page with a local machine path (C:...page.aspx) rather than the normal webserver path through http (http://localhost:33592/page.aspx). It is a Silverlight Navigation project using c#/asp.net code behind.
I'm trying to get my company to move to ASP.NET MVC and away from classic ASP. I've written some sample applications as proof-of-concept but now I'm running into problems as I try to deploy these mvc applications to my company's IIS7 server. My System Administrator says that there is something in ASP.NET MVC that is preventing him from having a UNC path specified as the server's physical path to the site folder. This sounds ridiculous to me because (to my knowledge) the MVC Framework doesn't have any effect on this setting... nor does the code I write. The bottom line is this: if any of my mvc applications are to be used for clients, they have to run on a server using a UNC physical path. Currently, the mvc apps will work when the server has a non UNC path... just not with a UNC path.
Am I wrong to tell the System Admin that it isn't MVC that's mucking up his UNC paths? Is there I resource you guys know of that I can use to research this problem? Edits:
The error that is showing up in the browser says:

I have some processes that run without an HttpContext in an ASP.NET MVC web application. This process needs to be able to determine the physical path to the Contents directory of the application for reading/writing data. But, since it is without an HttpContext, I don't get to use fancy things like Server.MapPath and such.
I have a web project and I saved my images in Physical folders in hdd Like d:SecretImagesImagename. But I can't open the files when I have to? I thought if it can saves for examle d:SecretImagesTemp.jpg, I can open when I have to but, I can't.
mov is a quicktime file, my server has the mimetype: video/quicktime .......... but as I read, this code forces the save as download box which is exactly what i want :) now, here's the catch, i the file I am fetching is NOT on the physical path... it is on a completely different server:Protected Sub LinkButton1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles LinkButton1.Click Response.Clear() Response.ContentType = "x-msdownload" Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", ("attachment; filename=mydownload.mov")) Response.TransmitFile("http://myOTHERserver.com/files/mydownload.mov") Response.End() End Sub
Obviously this doesn't work since TransmitFile requires that the file be on your physical path, so how do i do this? Someone said you must use the stream method. Do you have any sample code I could try? I've tried the HTTPStreamReader object but it's giving me issues, so I would love to find out if there is anyway this might work. Now here's some more important information: this are HUGE video files.. we are creating a downloads page... written in asp.net -- so you create an account using the .net membership class, then you select the file you want, go through a form where you enter your billing info and then after you pay a certain fee (this is already implemented), you go to your "downlaods" area in your account... there you have access to the files......... the reason i'm doing this is because i want to hide the download link, which will be something likehttp://myOTHERserver.com/2340987sdfkjhalsdlkjh23 ... (something really crazy)....... we don't want people seeing this on the status bar (Therefore hiding the download link is ESSENTIAL)........ the files are a good 500MB each approximately; so i would love to hear all of your suggestions as to making the streamreader work for me and how long would it take for the streamreader to READ the file........
I have been supplied this example for a force download[URL]However, what I would like to know what to do is to hide from the users the physical file path from the users as they do not have direct access to this server. Is there away for me to keep this file path private on a download?
I have a FileUpload control in an UpdatePanel and when user select a file, the full file path will will be stored in a hiddenfield, and during postback, i would like to assign the full file path in the hiddenfield back to the FileUpload control textbox, possible to achieve that?
