MSWC.Permission Checker component is not available on IIS6

I need to migrate a site from Windows 2000 server running IIS5 to Windows
2003 running IIS6.

The site uses extensively MSWC.Permission Checker to control what links to
show to users. The MSWC.Permission Checker that was part of IIS5 resource
kit but not available in IIS6 resource kit.

set oSecurity = Server.CreateOb ject("MSWC.Perm issionChecker")

If oSecurity.HasAc cess("somepath\ default.asp") Then
display link to somepath\defaul t.asp
end if
The component is documented by MS at
My infrastructure team refuses to install the PermChk.dll ( that provides
MSWC.Permission Checker object ) on Win2003 server for fear that this is
unsupported dll.

Any idea of what can be used for checking whether user has access to a page
or code sample so I can build my own component ( i.e. DLL)?

Thank you,

Hello Andrew,

The permchk.dll as one of the resource kit components is indeed not
supported (even for the version within IIS 5.0) . There is a KB article
listing these components:
"PRB: Server.CreateOb ject Fails When You Use an MSWC or IISSample

The last version of this dll comes with Windows XP and it is not cotained
in the Windows 2003 or IIS 6 Resource Kit tools. I think that registering
the permchk.dll component on Windows 2003 should work fine. (

Additional information:
There is a very elaborated kind of successor to this functionality in
Windows 2003. Authorization Manager (azman.msc) Authorization is a utility
that can be installed onto Windows 2003 and Windows XP Operating Systems
(located at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=28442). It allows for
role-based security

See the following articles

"HOW TO: Install and Administer the Authorization Manager in Windows Server

"Authorizat ion Manager and role-based administration overview; Windows
Server 2003, Standard Edition"

I have a global.asa for my website where I use a counter from MSWC.Counters to store the count of sessions. Unfortunately, every time I look at it the numbers could go down, or up radically. I tried using Scripting.FileSystemObject to make a text file where I could store the count, but apparently that doesn't work in global.asa. Is there another way to do this? I'd appreciate any help I can get. Thanks...

Hi! Anyone knows the ASP.NET equivalent of the PermissionChecker component that shipped with IIS 5? Basically, what it does is checking if the current user (using impersonation!) has access to a specified file. I've starting playing around with the FileIOPermission class, but this doesn't seem to do what I need (or I don't understand it). Any help would be appreciated!
