How to open a file in the current directory

Set fileSystem = Server.CreateOb ject( "Scripting.File SystemObject" )
Set file = fileSystem.Open TextFile( "config.xml ", 1, False )

It's saying that 'config.xml' doesn't exist. How can I reference this file?
It's in the same directory as the file with the above code. Do I need to
build the path somehow?

Set file = fileSystem.Open TextFile(Server .MapPath("confi g.xml"), 1, False)

This assumes Windows 2000 or later.

Server.MapPath( "config.xml ")
Otherwise the FSO object is usually based out of C:\<windows>\Sy stem32\

This appears to be a change in behavior from Python 2.4 to Python 2.5, which I can't find documented anywhere. It may be windows only, or related to Windows behavior. In 2.4, the current directory (os.curdir) was on sys.path. In 2.5, it appears to be the base directory of the running script. For example, if you execute the file testme.py in...
