ISAPI and CGI Applications get Errors Initializing the BDE


Scenario:  When my ISAPI or CGI Applications try to access the BDE they get an error when the BDE tries to initialize. The BDE appears to be installed correctly since regular desktop applications operate without any problems.

Suggestion:  The user that runs under IIS may not have proper permissions set on the system Temp directory. One suggestions is to change the security settings to Full Control for the USERS user. Full Control must be set on Temp in addition to the directory having read, write permissions.
